The government of President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday inaugurated the Central Ogbia Regional Water Supply Project in Bayelsa state.
Suleiman Adamu, minister of water resources, who inaugurated the project, said 13 communities, including Otuoke, hometown of former President Goodluck Jonathan, would benefit from it.
He said the commissioning shows that the Buhari administration is committed to completing all viable projects that have positive impact on the lives of our people “without any political sentiments”.
Adamu said adequate water supply for human and livestock production is a crucial aspect of social and economic development.
“The project we are inaugurating today is among the high priority projects for water supply,” he said.
“This project commissioning, therefore, further demonstrates that the Buhari administration is committed to completing all viable projects that have positive impact on the lives of our people without any political sentiments.”
He called on the host communities to take ownership of the water project by maintaining it for improvement of livelihood and reducing water borne diseases.
Serena Dokubo, secretary to the Bayelsa state government, commended the federal government for the project, saying such project was needed in other communities.
Dokubo said the state would continue to embark on projects that would improve on the lives of the people.
Speaking at the occasion, Ben Murray-Bruce, senator representing Bayelsa east, said lives are saved every time a water project was inaugurated.
“A lot of children die from consumption of unclean water, a lot fall sick, you have to spend more to take them to the hospital to get cured,” Murray-Bruce said.
About 130,000 people are expected to benefit from the project estimated at N5.9billion project.
