Water kiosking to be introduced in Ogun


Determined to end the scarcity of potable water supply in Ogun State, Governor Dapo Abiodun has said his administration will introduce a community-based water supply scheme known as ‘water kiosking’.

Abiodun, who made this known in his New Year broadcast, noted that the new initiative would not only bring the much-needed succour to the people but also ensure that water is made readily available across the state.

“We will ensure the improved provision of potable water supply in our major towns and cities through a continuous upgrade of production capacity and distribution network. We are introducing community-based water supply known as ‘water kiosking’, a new initiative that will bring potable water supply to several communities across the state,” the governor stated.

On the issue of some parents and guardians bullying teachers in the state, Abiodun vowed that such action would be met with swift sanctions.

Abiodun, while also noting that his administration would be implementing its Public-Private Partnership initiatives for power generation in the state, added that the initiative would improve and guarantee electricity supply to major cities and clusters in the state.

The governor further disclosed that a Mother and Child hospital in conjunction with the AbdulSamad Rabiu Africa Initiative would soon berth at the Olabisi Onabanjo University Teaching Hospital, adding that the public-private partnership agreement in respect of the 250-bed hospital left uncompleted by the immediate past administration would soon be finalized.
