Community Gets Water After 100 Years Of Iju Water Works


A community in Ajeromi-Ifelodun Local Government of Lagos State, South West Nigeria, has  expressed gratitude to the state governor Mr. Babatunde Fashola, over the construction  and commissioning of Ajegunle mini water works that supplies all the communities in the  area with water after 100 years of the existence of Iju Water Works.

Speaking on behalf of the community, the traditional ruler of Ibafon town, Baale Kayode  Okunola, thanked the governor, saying that his people now have access to good drinking  water.

Okunola stated that the community, before this time, had to contend with untreated water  for close to 100 years until the Fashola-led administration came to their rescue by  supplying two million gallons of water per day to the area.

According to him, Fashola has within three years as governor, carved a niche for himself  with the provision of social amenities as well as infrastructure renewal, adding that  among his counterparts, he stands out in the area of good governance, saying that Lagos  residents should be grateful to God for Fashola’s giant strides since his assumption of  office.

Playing the proverbial Oliver Twist, the traditional ruler, however, appealed to the  state government to quickly replace the rusty underground pipes that supply water to the  entire community. He also implored government to rehabilitate the Ibafon Street road that  leads to the newly built Health Centre, providing it with good drainage channels to  ensure the life span of the newly rehabilitated roads.
