All and sundry in the community and it’s environs were full of joy for this wonderful feat.
The Igbotako community which is one of the largest communities in Okitipupa Local Government Area cannot boast of any portable water.
It is still a norm that members of the community are still fetching drinking water from the stream even at this age and time .
The last time the community saw government initiated portable water i was in 1980 as such this 4000 litres borehole project will no doubt alleviate the water needs of the people of the community.
But the people say, they are still hopeful that other well meaning indigenes of the community will still come up with initiatives like this that will further alleviate the suffering of the community and the people will be better for it.
