General Electrical Dealers Association (GEDA), a unit in Alaba International Market Lagos has commissioned a new 200/11KVA electricity transformer for improved power supply to its members.
The ceremony was performed by the chairman of the Anambra Indigenous Forum in the market, Hon. Chinedu Arinze.
While commissioning the transformer, Hon. Arinze prayed to God that the transformer may serve the purpose for which it was acquired.
Speaking on the occasion, the Chairman of GEDA Chief Felix Nwagu thanked members of the organization for their unflinching support for his leadership without which he said he could not have achieved much.
He announced for the benefit of those who were not aware that the transformer was acquired without levying the members.
Chief Nwagu disclosed that the fund came from what he called “Internally Generated Revenue”.
He expressed gratitude to some individuals within and outside the organization who he said voluntarily made contributions towards the success of the project. He however did not mention their names. Nonetheless, Nwagu singled out two individuals for special recognition in view of their long standing support for the organization. He said he owes it as a duty to appreciate the contributions of his predecessor Chief Uche Igwe and the Grand Patron Chief TonyFaith Ojike. He eulogized them for their contributions towards the progress of GEDA over the years.
Our Correspondent observed that it was a day for celebrating the chairman as speaker after speaker on the occasion showered encomiums on him.
