The Oyo State Government said it has commenced a phase-by-phase rehabilitation of water pipelines across the state.

The state’s Commissioner for Information and Orientation, Dotun Oyelade disclosed this in a statement on Thursday.

Ojelade, while quoting the Chairman of the Oyo State Water Corporation, Elias Adeojo, said that the rehabilitation was to ensure that there are “more treated water drawing points to cater for the yearnings of the Corporation’s customers and boost its revenue drive.”

On January 21, the Oyo State Government urged an international organisation, Water Aid, to provide it with grants to revive the state’s water sector.

Adeojo had stated further that the Water AID fund would be used for water sanitation, hygiene, and extension of water pipelines, adding that the grant is for projects located in African countries.

He had also stated that the fund would be used for water sanitation, hygiene, and extension of water pipelines, adding that the grant is for projects located in African countries.

The Water Corporation chair disclosed that the paucity of funds had necessitated the need to carry out the rehabilitation project in phases.

Adeojo added, “The Eleyele drawing point has been facelifted by adding more treated water drawing points to cater to the yearnings of the Corporation’s customers and boost its revenue drive”.
