Tete, who was addressing a group of youths that visited him at his Yenche village home, said the electrification project would be connected from Gwargwada electricity high tension to Kwaku village so that other neighbouring communities would also benefit.
“Besides, the bill is already on ground, but our major constraint is fund, as the finances are not there. After all the billing, about N78 million is to be expended on the project  but I found out that even if I award the contract, contractors’ money may be tied down,” he said.
According to him, due to challenges of funds, the council would award the electrification project in phases; thus Yenche phase 1, Geshe phase II and Kwaku phase III, adding that the project would commence in January.
He said despite the challenges of lack of funds facing the council, his administration would not fail to provide viable projects that would improve the lives of residents of the council.
He further told the youth that the council has concluded arrangement to award contract for grading of Kigbe-Kwaku road and construction of water drainages as well as bridges/culverts across some streams along the road.
The council chairman, while thanking the youths for their continuous support for his administration, urged them to live in peace with one another and to be law abiding to constituted authorities.
The youth leader, Ibrahim D. Manase, said the youths of Yenche and some neighboring villages decided to mobilise themselves to visit the council chairman and to urge him on the need to give priority to youth empowerment.
“Because, we have some of us who are Okada riders, electric welders, carpenters and bricklayers, we need your support so that after all these trades/skill training, we will be able to establish our own businesses,” he said.   
The youth leader, who commended the council chairman in his effort in providing basic amenities across rural communities, appealed to the council to expedite action in completing the ongoing grading of Yenche-Leda road.
