Kogi:

The can­di­date of the So­cial Demo­cratic Party in the Novem­ber 16 gov­er­nor­ship elec­tion in Kogi State, Natasha Akpoti, has can­vassed the in­stal­la­tion of potable wa­ter sys­tems in ru­ral com­mu­ni­ties in the state.

She said this at the in­au­gu­ra­tion of four bore­holes built by her for some ru­ral ar­eas at the cost of about N5m.

Akpoti, in a state­ment on Satur­day, said the bore­holes, which were part of her ef­forts to serve hu­man­ity, were to ad­dress the yearn­ings of the peo­ple.

She said in the course of her cam­paign for the Novem­ber 16 elec­tion, she re­alised that some com­mu­ni­ties lacked potable wa­ter.

She pleaded with the gov­ern­ment to build more bore­holes to meet the wa­ter de­mands in ru­ral com­mu­ni­ties.

“As part of the oc­ca­sion to mark her 40th birth­day, the can­di­date of the So­cial Demo­cratic Party in the last Kogi gov­er­nor­ship elec­tion, Natasha Akpoti, has re­stated her com­mit­ment to serve hu­man­ity at her best by do­nat­ing bore­holes to some com­mu­ni­ties in Kogi State,” the state­ment read in part.

Some of the bore­hole projects were sited in Eika Ohizenyi, Oboroke and Obeiba in Okehi Lo­cal Gov­ern­ment Area and Inorere in Adavi Lo­cal Gov­ern­ment Area of Kogi State, among oth­ers.
