The Deputy Speaker, Elder Mathew Okedare, who presided over the Tuesday's sitting, while reading the resolution of the Parliament, said the need to connect the community to national grid became necessary in view of the communal spirit so far demonstrated by the community in procuring almost half of the equipment needed to connect it to national grid.
