45 Enugu divisional police stations to get 24hr solar power


The Enugu State Executive Council has approved the installation of 24-hour solar technology to power the 45 Divisional Police Stations in the state, P.M. News reports.

The state Commissioner for Information, Mr Ogbuagu Anikwe, disclosed this on Wednesday in Enugu. He said that the gesture was meant to assist the police to overcome the perennial difficulties their officers faced especially at night when power supply from the public source was interrupted. He said that government also observed the difficulties being faced by those who reported cases at night, especially when there was power outage.

He said that simple but steady solar power supply units would be installed in reception and charge rooms which would be used for illumination, charging of phones, and for powering other essential working tools. He added that solar-powered street lamps would also be installed within the premises and precincts of each of the divisional offices to help to monitor movement into and out of such precincts.
