Man Cries Out As He Shows Off 1000 Bags Of Water He Uses To Bathe In Lekki by Gistmedia10: 12:21pm On Jun 15
A resident of Lekki, Lagos Island, has taken to social media to share his struggles with water scarcity in the upscale neighborhood. In a video that has quickly gone viral, the man shows about 1000 bags of water he claims to use daily for bathing.

Standing beside a massive pile of sachet water bags, commonly known as "pure water" in Nigeria, the man explains his predicament: "This is my daily routine.

Lekki, despite its reputation for luxury and high property values, suffers from significant infrastructure issues, with water scarcity being a major concern. Many residents, like the man in the video, are forced to purchase sachet water due to unreliable municipal supply.

I used to refer to Island as " Rich Man Prison"
You want to buy snacks you have to drive all the way to supermarket lol
No kiosk or Aboki in those areas

Anything you want is out of reach
So it forces you to order for anything to be delivered to your house.

One time I went to island for acting movie.
We spent 1 week shooting film
The water coming from the tap was brown in color.
Nobody wanted to touch the water
We thought the brown color came from sewage pipe. But it had no smell.

Luckily for us, there is a well inside that compunond. We had to use the well and put buckets outside whenever rain fall.

That was when I realized that all that glitters is not gold. Mainland is bae kiss

Before he rented the apartment, was he not aware that the place does not have good water? If he was aware of the situation, he is just exposing his stupidity by making noise online. And if he was aware of the situation before he rented the apartment, he probably rented the apartment because he thought he would be making enough money to buy expensive water but the economy has failed him and he doesn't want to be straightforward to state exactly what made him to rent the apartment.

Was he aware of the water situation but his landlord promised him good water and later failed him? If this is the situation, he should be straightforward to tell the public that his landlord deceived him.

Can't the water be treated if it's bad? Why rely on tankers to supply water?

The water has high iron concentration or so

It is not totally safe even when it is treated.

It affects skin too if you have a skin that reacts easily.

The best reliance was lagos state water corporation but it no longer functions

How about putting the sachets in the bucket and using knife to burst through them. Then afterwards you squeeze out the bursted sachets. That's super fast. Try it

I understand now, how will I have to cough out such prices and still go through this issue. I will have to look for an alternative.

Smh. Before yhu rent the house, didn't yhu enquire about the available amenities in the house?

Well, get yhurself a GP tank and look for a tanker to be supplying yhu. That is, if yhu must continue to stay there.


1k pure to bath, what about the rest room? Abi yhu no dey use toilet? I won't ask about laundry because yhu can easily take yhur clothes to dry cleaners but yhur boxers nko? undecided

Nigeria is irredeemable.

No country can progress with disunity, corruption, incompetent leaders, disregard for rule of law, hatred, tribalism and religious bigotry.
