The company also donated a 500KVA electricity transformer at Gidan Baduwa in Wamakko Local Government Area.

Inaugurating the projects on Wednesday, the BUA Managing Director, Yusuf Halliru-Binji, said the projects were provided to complement the government’s efforts in the provision of basic amenities to its host communities.
