In its new humanitarian drive, a non-governmental organization, Booda Sunday Adeyemo Foundation (BSA) has commissioned a renovated borehole to meet basic water needs of the populace at Orita-Ajaawa, Ogbomoso, Oyo state.
The development was a direct response to decades of lack of good water in Ogbomoso South suburbs.
Founder of the organization, Mr Sunday Adeyemo said, “The project is in line with the SGD Goal- Clean water and sanitation, which helps to ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all.
According to him, the renovated borehole would help reduce health issues associated with drinking unclean water, and also save time and resources involved searching for water in communities, kilometres away.
Water, which is essential for human existence, is also important to Life as well as the well-being of a society. It is at the core of sustainable development, economic growth and environmental sustainability.
Due to the poor investments of the Nigerian government in water supply, it has been estimated that over 52% of its citizens have no access to good portable water, and this has led many societies and individuals to the construction of boreholes as an alternate source of potable water.
The Ogbomoso South born politician, Mr Sunday Adeyemo has been galvanizing actions around the SGD framework in order to accelerate achievement of water-related goals and eradicate crisis in Ogbomoso South.
“We are going to renovate more boreholes for communities as part of our little contributions and in furtherance of Goal six of the Sustainable Development Goals— pinched on the provision of clean water and sanitation, he said!
