He said: “The Lagos Electricity Policy is vital in achieving the T.H.E.M.E.S. agenda of this administration and will serve as a key driver for the social and economic development aspirations of the State in consonance with Government’s 30-year Development Plan (2021 – 2051) being developed.”

Odusote added that the governor approved the procurement and installation of 20,000 units of prepaid energy meters for communities in the state to improve electricity supply in the affected communities.
