COMMERCIAL customers and government departments in the Dreketi area in Macuata will have to look for their own contractors for wiring in order to be energised through the Seaqaqa-Dreketi rural electrification project.

In her briefing to the heads of departments during a meeting in Labasa early this week, FEA's Arieta Tabaiwalu said commercial customers would have to look for their own contractors to do the wirings in their respective premises.

"Customers in the area have been advised on this and we hope they will make arrangements soon so that power can be supplied to them," she said.

"So far, Navesidrua and Batiri villages have been energised including some schools and the sub-stations in Seaqaqa and Dreketi.

"The project is on its final stage at the moment and we have already completed three stages.

"We can confirm that it will be opened this month but the date is yet to be confirmed.

"For Nabavatu Village, it will be energised this month."

Acting commissioner Northern Alipate Bolalevu urged government heads to make arrangements and hire contractors to carry out such works in their offices in Dreketi before the official opening of the project.
