“It is very important that clean water must be made available, as this will create truly hygienic setting for our people” she said.

While commissioning the water projects, Governor of Osun State, Ademola Adeleke, reiterated that he will continue to speak to citizens of the state from his heart and demonstrate in actions.

He also said that he will ensure that he delivers his electioneering promises to the people of the state without unnecessary propaganda.

Governor Adeleke, who was represented by his deputy, Prince Kola Adewusi, emphasized the need for the beneficiaries of the projects to seriously see to the issues of maintenance and sustainability.

According to the governor;
“Water is the driving force of all nature; nothing can survive or be produced without water. That is to say, if there is any magic on this planet, it is contained in Water. When streams, rivers and wells dry, then, we know the importance of water.

“It then behoves on any serious government to take the issue of provision of water as an important aspect of good governance. When water supplies are improved and made sustainable, it significantly enhanced community economic growth and reduces poverty.

“Women and children who often spend hours everyday searching for water which inhibits women from working to generate livelihood as well as reducing children’s time for education can start using their time for productive ventures, as clean, portable and drinkable water is now within their reach.

“We are in governance to see to such challenges of the people of Osun State and proffer solutions. This was our promise during our electioneering campaign and for us, we speak from the heart and we demonstrate in actions. We stand by our promises without unnecessary propaganda.”

At the event, the HLA Irepodun Local government, Mrs Toyin Eye lauded the state government for the good work.

Also, the CPMC Chairman, Chief Afisu appreciated his excellency, Ademola Adeleke for the laudable projects and promised to ensure proper use and maintenance of the water.
