Water is life, so they say, life is becoming unbearable for residents of Ogun State, they celebrate the new year in searching for water to use in cooking and other domestic purposes as the major source of the water, Ogun State Water Board has stopped supplying water to residents for a while.

According to a resident in Papalanto, Ewekoro local government of the state ‘ it’s a pity that we are facing serious water Scarcity within the locality, since this administration came on board, we’ve been facing shortage of water, the supply started reducing gradually and now, they don’t even give us water at all again, you can imagine, this new year celebration, we’re begging water from house to house to cook as those Well that has water were closed by the owners, the governor, His Excellency, Dapo Abiodun should quickly come to our rescue if not this dry season will be a hell for all of us in the state, the water supplier that cover up because of demand cannot meet up, with our four thousand naira, you call them, they wouldn’t show up and if you dig borehole, you can’t get good water because of the alkalinic nature of the soil, if not nobody will look up to government for water, he said.
In our phone conversation with a staff of the water board in Abeokuta, who doesn’t want his name in print, said, the situation is beyond the management of the water board, that virtually all the operation has shut down across the state including the state capital, Abeokuta except Ota Area and the supply is not normal, everything is in the hand of the government, the management has sent proposal to the government, I believe it already reflected in the passed budget but when it will work, I don’t know but God knows, let’s keep our hope rising.
All efforts to speak with the government through Chief Press Secretary to the governor failed as his telephone number is busy unreachable.
