Former Ekiti state Governor, His Excellency, Engr. Segun Oni on Saturday commissioned two borehole facilities in the state capital – Ado Ekiti. A project initiated by Opeyemi David Falegan through his foundation – ODF. The water facilities were commissioned in two wards of the state capital with the promise of extending the kind gesture to the remaining wards.
While commissioning the borehole projects, Engr. Oni appreciated the initiator for the laudable projects, “This is a sign of love, honesty, commitment and purity. The development is not new, Opeyemi took after his father. Baba Falegan is a father to all and a lover of his people” Oni said.
In his reaction, the former governor discussed the importance of water as a basic necessity for all citizens, he said, “During my tenure as the governor, The Ureje water facilities we inherited when we assume office was built by foreigners and the capacity couldn’t serve the masses at large, we came up with the project of expanding it and we achieved that, although I can’t ascertain maybe those facilities are still working as I speak to you”.
The Former Governor also advised those in attendance that better days are coming for Ekiti people. He berated the economic hardship Nigerians are facing both at the federal and state levels and also assured the people that the PDP will surely take over and bring the deserving comfort to the citizens by the special Grace of God.
The founder of ODF, Opeyemi Falegan in his remarks, said, “I started these sets of programme six years ago with various empowerment programmes, agricultural support initiatives and many more, I decided to start the borehole projects because the state capital is facing hardship in getting what God gave to man in excess. I will keep investing in the borehole programmes until we have them done in all the 177 wards in Ekiti State.
Hon. Falegan presented the former governor, Engr Segun oni as his mentor, “infact everywhere he goes, I follow. I believe in his activities and my only advise to give all Ekiti sons and daughters is to support him in his bid to govern Ekiti come 2022”.
In attendance were PDP bigwigs and other community leaders.
