The speaker added that the importance of electricity to human and  societal development could not be overemphasized, hence the need of his determination to lobby for the transformers from the state government.

” The governor in his magnanimity has graciously approved the installation  of the transformers for me in any part of my local government, that I deemed it necessary.

“You know Toto Local Government is one of the larger local governments in the state with two constituencies, Umaisha/ Ugya which is my own constituency and Toto/ Gadabuke and I deemed it necessary and important as a very  significant project and life touching, I should extend it and start from the second constituency because my own immediate constituency has benefited a lot in my interventions.
