|NNPC, SNEPCO Hand Over 10 Solar Powered Boreholes, 16 VIP Latrines To Borno Idps by milann: 5:44pm On Jun 30, 2021|
The Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC
and Shell Exploration and Production Company have
donated 10 Solar Powered Boreholes and 16 VIP
latrines to thousands of Internally Displaced Persons,
IDPs and other host communities across seven local
government areas of Borno state.
The donation and handing over were done on
Wednesday virtually at the Council Chamber, Deputy
Governor’s office, Alhaji Umar Usman Kadafur.
Speaking, Kadafur lauded NNPC/ SNEPCO for the
intervention which he said would impact positively on
the lives of the benefitting communities.
Kadafur whose speech was read by the State
Commissioner for Inter-Governmental Affairs, Alhaji
Mohammed Wanori, said the intervention was in line
with the administration’s policy of restoration of
livelihood in communities worst affected by the decade
“Let me also reiterate the fact that this administration
places a high premium on the adage which says ‘water
is life’ and therefore has placed the issue of providing
portable water for human and animal consumption
among its 10-point agenda.
“On behalf of the people of Borno State, we remain
appreciative for this uncommon intervention as part
of your corporate social responsibility.
“This will certainly go a long way in addressing water
scarcity being experienced in the selected communities.
Therefore, this intervention is quite commendable and
should be sustained for the benefit of the people of
Borno State,” Kadafur said.
While assuring sustainability of the projects, Kadafur
urged benefiting communities to ensure maximum
utilization of the facilities.
Speaking earlier, the Project Manager, Alhaji Ibrahim
Ringim, said the projects which comprised 10 hybrid
solar boreholes and 16 VIP latrines that are friendly
for the usage of people living with disabilities were
executed in seven LGAs across the three Senatorial
Zones of the state.
Speaking on behalf of benefiting LGAs and
communities, the Chairman of Gubio LGA, Alhaji Mali
Gubio, and General Manager of Ruwassa in Borno, Mr
Mohammed Aliyu, lauded the intervention and
assured their commitment for its protection and
maintenance to ensure the sustainability of the water
In their respective messages to the occasion through
virtual, representative of NNPC, Aliyu Jafaru and that
of SNEPCO, Alice Aje, said the joint projects as part of
their corporate social responsibility to communities in
Borno and other states across Nigeria.
