The lawmaker representing Ogbomoso South Constituency in the Oyo State House of Assembly and Majority Leader under the umbrella of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Honourable Sanjo Adedoyin has commissioned four motorized boreholes in Ogbomoso on Monday, assuring residents of more projects in the constituency.
The projects which were commissioned by the former Majority Leader of the Green Chamber in the 7th Assembly, Alhaja Mulikat Akande Adeola commenced at Oke Osuuru community. Other communities include; Alapata, Idi Oro and Federal Low cost Housing Estate communities.
Alhaja Mulikat stated that the water projects were to partly fulfill the lawmaker’s campaign promises, adding that more dividends of democracy would be facilitated by the lawmaker.
Hon. Sanjo Adedoyin asserted that soon after he resumed as the legislator representing the constituency, he did a survey to identify the major problem facing the constituency and discovered that over 70 per cent of residents lacked access to potable water.
He added that every resident of the four communities is the owner of the boreholes, urging them to use the facilities with care so that they would last long.
The lawmaker also urged government at all levels to invest more in the provision of potable water, stressing that the provision of such social amenity should not be left in the hands of private individuals.
The Majority Leader assured the residents that he would facilitate more state projects, declaring that more roads would soon be rehabilitated in the constituency by the state government.
“Governor Seyi Makinde has been doing well in terms of restoring moribund factories, reviving health centres as well as road construction and rehabilitation in our town. We know of the moribund Pacesetter Food Processing Company at Oko, the ‘Light Up Oyo’ Project (Phase Two) and the reconstruction of Under G-Stadium-LAUTECH-2nd Gate Road (3Km) by the state government. There are other roads in our constituency which will also be rehabilitated. I know work will start soon,” Sanjo said.
