Addressing newsmen,Executive Director, Of the Civil Organisation, Prof. Wasiu Oyedokun-Alli, said, “For reasons of political expediency, particularly the celebration of 100 days in office, the government decided to implement the policy.

“As responsible citizens who are equal stakeholders in the Osun project, we visited numerous locations of these boreholes and discovered that, although the government has informed the State’s people through several press releases and interviews that the boreholes were now completed and in service, majority of the boreholes are still not functional.

“We visited several wards across the state and interacted with many locals in those areas visited. Our findings revealed that upon completion of most, if not all of the boreholes, they did not work beyond the day the installed pumping machines were tested.”
