Handing over the first project at Igbopa Ifesowapo at Abule Eko in Ijede Area of Ikorodu, the Commissioner for Rural Development, Cornelius Ojelabi, said the state government decided to accede to their request for rural electrification despite the fact that it is the responsibility of the Federal Government, who in turn has handed it over to the private sector in other to ensure that they enjoy the dividend of democracy in their area.
