Peter Obi Commissions Borehole in Kogi Community

Peter Obi, Kogi

The Presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP) in the 2023 general elections, Peter Obi on Tuesday commissioned a borehole project in Onaogaji Community, Ankpa Local Government Area of Kogi State.

Obi noted he was motivated to take on the initiative after he learnt the community had lacked access to clean water.

“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.

“Addressing this issue is imperative, and we must work together to ensure that more Nigerians can access this essential resource. Through projects like the one in Onaogaji, we are making strides towards building a New Nigeria where every citizen can enjoy basic life amenities,” he said.
