The lawmaker representing Ikorodu Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives, Babajimi Benson has doled out home solar-powered lights to households in the Ikorodu area of Lagos.
The intervention is in line with the mission of Benson — who is the Chairman of the House Committee on Defence — to light up Ikorodu Federal Constituency and provide alternative source of electricity to his constituents.
The solar-powered system includes a 50wp solar panel, four LED bulbs, a solar-powered 16″ standing fan, transistor radio, torch and adaptable charging ports to power up to 6 appliances.
According to the lawmaker’s team, the beneficiaries are majorly vulnerable people living in Ikorodu who can’t afford to power their homes, especially in communities grappling with epileptic power supply.
