In its efforts towards improving access to drinking water as well as preventing diseases outbreak, the Kwara State Government has begun fixing of non~functional boreholes across the State through the Kwara Training, Repair, Empowerment and Community~ownership (KWA~TRECO 1.0) project, a borehole training programme for Kwara youths.

Following its flag~off by His Excellency, Mallam AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq barely two weeks ago, no fewer than thirty~eight youths across rural communities in Moro, Asa and Ifelodun Local Government Areas of Kwara State had been trained through KWA~TRECO 1.0 project.

After the completion of the training sessions which took place at Bode~Sadu, Afon, and Share respectively between Tuesday 12 and Friday 15 of March, 2024, participants were required to fix boreholes in selected communities while government paid for the expenses of the project.

Addressing residents of Bode~Sadu on the initiative, the Senior Special Assistant on Community Development to the Kwara State Governor, Dr Lawal Olohungbebe appealed to them to take ownership of boreholes and other amenities in their community while commending the governor for providing the fund for the project.

Olohungbebe expressed satisfaction over attitude and commitment of the participants towards the project and urged them to support the government in addressing the issue of nonfunctional boreholes across rural areas.

In his reaction, a community leader in Isale~Arinhun in Bode~Sadu, Alhaji Mustapha Oluwadamilare commended Mallam AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq’s administration over fixing of boreholes and assured the SSA that his community would no longer wait on government to repair their borehole when the need arose.

Speaking on behalf of other beneficiaries in Moro, Omosola Omolara from Jebba thanked the state government for the opportunity, adding that, they would work as a team in fixing faulty boreholes in their area.
