There is a saying that says, ‘there is always light at the end of the tunnel’ and this is a peculiar story of a community in the northeast region of Nigeria who has been disconnected from electricity supply for about two decades and a half.
The community, Tongo local government area of Adamawa state has been electrified and connected to the national grid for the supply of electricity after 24 years of blackout.
The effort to reconnect the community to get access to electricity was made by the state governor, Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri.
The project is set to be commissioned on Friday May 21 by the governor and other stakeholders in the power sector.
It is a history making for the community as the governor is showered by commendation by public in the social media.
