Obi commissions borehole in Kogi

The presidential candidate of the Labour party in the 2023 general elections, Peter Obi has commissioned a new borehole project in Onaogaji Community, Ankpa Local Government Area, Kogi State.

This is part of his nationwide water provision for needy communities.

Obi inaugurated the project to the delight and applause of Onaogaji citizens on Tuesday.

Writing about the event, Obi said on X: “Yesterday, I had the honor of commissioning a new borehole project in Onaogaji Community, Ankpa Local Government Area, Kogi State.

“This initiative is a testament to our commitment to the sustainable development goals, particularly ensuring access to clean and potable water, which is crucial for the health and well-being of our people.

“Learning that Onaogaji Community lacked access to clean water motivated me to take action and donate this borehole.

“Clean water is a basic necessity that many communities in Nigeria still lack. According to the World Bank, about 70 million Nigerians do not have access to safe drinking water, and diarrheal diseases cause the deaths of at least 70,000 children under five each year.”
