Buhari Administration Inaugurates Water Project In GEJ's Hometown Otuoke

The Federal Government on Thursday inaugurated the Central Ogbia Regional Water Supply Project in Bayelsa.

The Minister of Water Resources, Suleiman Adamu, who inaugurated the project, said 13 communities, including Otuoke, would benefit from the N5.9 billion project.

According to him, the Federal Government is committed to complete all abandoned water projects to improve livelihood.
Mr. Adamu said adequate water supply for human and livestock production was a crucial aspect of social and economic development.

He said the recently launched roadmap on water resources underscores the need for short and long term strategies for effective and efficient delivery of water to the people.

“The project we are inaugurating today is among the high priority projects for water supply.
“This project commissioning, therefore, further demonstrates that the Buhari administration is committed to completing all viable projects that have positive impact on the lives of our people without any political sentiments,’’ the minister said.

He called on the host communities to take ownership of the water project by maintaining it for improvement of livelihood and reducing water borne diseases.

The Secretary to Bayelsa State Government, Serena Dokubo, commended the Federal Government for the project, saying such project was needed in other communities.
Mr. Dokubo said the state would continue to embark on projects that would impact on the lives of the people.

Speaking at the occasion, Senator Ben Murray-Bruce (Bayelsa East), noted that lives were saved every time a water project was inaugurated.
“A lot of children die from consumption of unclean water, a lot fall sick, you have to spend more to take them to the hospital to get cured,’’ Mr. Murray-Bruce said.

Otuoke is the hometown of ex-President Goodluck Jonathan who was criticised for failing to provide potable water to the town and neighbouring communities despite being in power, either as deputy governor, governor, vice president or president, for 16 years.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that about 130,000 people are expected to benefit from the N5.9billion project.

    1. It's a huge shame. You don't know, so don't support rubbish.
      I was in Bayelsa Law School for one year, and it was a terrible experience. No water, no good roads, no nothing. Ur Jonathan did absolutely NOTHING for his people. They re suffering seriously.
      So I think it's you who should go and take several seats.

  4. Another way to embezzle money.
    Wait I don't understand, na artificial ocean dem won do?

    1. Embezzling or artificial ocean, did Jonathan do it?

  5. Hmmmmmmm una want to shame Jona abi

  6. Before nko? that not what he is suppose to do?...
    What of all the goodies GEJ did to the north during his time...

    1. Don't mind them. Is this a big deal? Do you guys know how much GEJ spent to build schools for northern almajiri's? He even gave them free food and all that. If only he did all those northern projects in the south......

    2. But he did not give common water to his state when he was governor. When everyone was disillusioned with "...he was assistant class captain and became class captain, he was deputy governor. ..blah blah... i was just laughing. I kept asking what he had done as a governor. But the sentiments were annoying. Ordinary water!!! Bayelsa is one of the states with oil that is least developed.
      Please lets look for a real hero cos its not Jonathan no matter how hard his publicist works to give a false image.
      I am not a sentimental person. Not for anyone. It just annoys me when people act gullible abd brainwashed.

  7. Wait a minute! So all d while Dr Jonathan was governor of that state and president of the country, there was no water? Haba!! People will still come and say something foolish here that it is a political strategy to tumble the other party of government. Chai!!! I laugh in anang.

    1. Hmmmm na so we take see am o. Lol

  8. So true oo, people in bayelsa find it difficult to get good water, and the roads too are terrible!

  9. Jonathan did nothing for his people yet built N700m Almajiri schools in the North which this administration says it's too expensive to maintain. Foolish man. His own people are not happy with him.

  10. Goodluck Jonathan should be ashamed of himself that it takes his successor to inaugurate the water project to his home town. What a shame.
