- Village folk of Ziavi have celebrated their inclusion on the national grid
- Reports have it that the residents were connected to the grid following many calls
- What is now left is for power to be sent to individual homes
- Our Manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
Residents of rural areas of the Ziavi Traditional Area in the Ho Municipality of the Volta Region have been thrown into jubilation over electrification which has been extended to the villages.
Many villages in the traditional area have not benefitted from electricity supply over the years despite many calls to authorities for the connection of the villages to the national grid.
However, the residents at long last can boast of electricity which they had hitherto dreamed of for a long time.
Electricity poles have been installed across the villages and cables also extended.
It is however left with residents to get the electricity connected to their individual houses after wiring.
Some happy residents who spoke to YEN.com.gh's reporter indicated that they are so happy because they are now going to watch television and also enjoy life.
Bertha, a single mother of four said that she wished her husband was alive to witness the connection of the villages to the national grid.
She also said that her husband was part of a few village folks who had been calling and doing everything possible to get electricity extended to the villages.
Speaking about making history and becoming first-timers, YEN.com.gh earlier reported that Ghana-based Gambian actress, Princess Shyngle, has come out to boldly state her political ambitions and she is aiming for the highest office in Gambia.
Princess Shyngle, in a post fast gaining engagement on Instagram, stated that she is going to be the president of Gambia soon.
By effect, the popular socialite was saying she was going to make history should her dream come true and see her as the first female president of the African nation.
