Goodluck Jonathan's Town Otuoke has no portable Water!



 Mr Elijah Ateki, the Chairman, Community Development Committee (CDC), Otuoke, Ogbia Local Government Area, Bayelsa, has bemoaned the scarcity of potable water in the area NAN Reports.

Ateki said in Otuoke on Sunday that lack of drinking water was the major problem in the community.
According to him, the situation is due to the pollution of rivers in the area by oil spillage.

He said the community had suffered inadequate potable water over the years, and urged the State and Federal Governments to provide the people with potable water.

“Otuoke community depends on rivers and now that all the rivers are polluted by oil, it is difficult for us to get potable water here.” Ateki said.

Emmanuel Agede, a member of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) serving in the area, expressed dissatisfaction with the situation and called for government’s intervention.

“You will not believe it that here in Otuoke, we use water from an unused suck-away pit dug near our lodge, for washing clothes and bathing.
“For cooking and drinking, we buy sachet water; life is very difficult here; we spend the bulk of our monthly allowances on water for survival. 

Waohhhh! Haba Baba Jona is this really true fa! no water in your own town?!! That's really bad!
