PHOTOS: Excitement As Buhari Provides Borehole For Okeogun Community


There was a wild jubilation in Elekokan community as Senator AbdulFatai Buhari, who represents Oyo North senatorial district relieved them of acute water scarcity with a donation of 4 unit  motorized solar borehole.

The borehole is among the 13 borehole projects facilitated for 13 local government areas in the senatorial district.

Hundreds of resident of the community trooped to the street to welcome and appreciate the lawmaker for what many termed as a donation that will alleviate  their age-long sufferings

Some of the residents, in their interaction with our reporter, explained that the two major problems facing the communities are water and electricity and with this development one is partly solved 

They said that they paid as much as N80 for 25 litres of water from neighbouring community which is about 4 kilometers away from their community.

A community leader, Alhaji Abdulrasaq Salawudeen, told our reporter that “Every family has a well by the only river that passes through the town and that has been the only source of water for the people. We are happy to have this, one was done by Shina Peller but it is not as big as this, this is will definitely reduce our suffering,” he submitted.

“We have been having promises from politicians and they have been failing but Senator Buhari has proven to be a true lover of the masses, Omoluabi to the core who did not only promise but also fulfilled it withn stipulated time, we are expecting more and we will also support him.”

Speaking at the commissioning, Buhari said borehole was part of his campaign promises to the people of the community when he visited them in 2015.

This is just as he assured that he is working with various stakeholders to ensure that the community is connected to the national grid.

While urging them to vote for All Progressives Congress, APC, in the forthcoming election, the lawmaker said supporting continuity of APC’s government will afford them the opportunity of having basic amenities and other benefits that will enhance their socio-economic life.

Bubari, who is the chairman Senate Committee on ICT and Cybercrime, also commissioned borehole projects in Isalu Iseyin, Okaka  and Ilua in Oke Ogun area of Oyo State.
