Rotary Club of Nigeria has pledged to provide 28 boreholes to improve access to potable water in eight local government areas of Bayelsa.

Mr Ikponmuwosa Ogiemudia, District 9141 Governor of Rotary Club, made this known during a visit to the state Ministry of Water Resources on Tuesday in Yenagoa.

Ogiemudia said that the drilling of the 28 boreholes was part of the club’s humanitarian activities in the state.

He added that arrangements had been concluded for immediate commencement of work on two of the boreholes in the state capital.

The state Commissioner for Water Resources, Mr. Nengi Tubonah commended the club for the gesture.

Tubonah noted that water is essential to human existence, adding that Gov. Seriake Dickson was passionate about providing safe drinking water to the people of the state.

He said that in spite of the economic downturn, the state government recently paid counterpart fund for the European Union water projects in the state.

The commissioner further said that work would soon commence at various sites across the state. (NAN)
