No fewer than six communities in Kwara State have been offered solar-powered boreholes to improve the water supply in the area.

The communities listed are Oloje, Abayawo, Adeta, Eleyele, Egbejila and Erin-Ile in Ilọrin.

Abibakr As-Sidiq Philanthropic Home and the King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Centre jointly facilitated the project.

Speaking during the commissioning at Oloje, Mr Farid Abdulrazzaq Salman, the President of Abibakr As-Sidiq Philanthropic Home, said the project signifies a significant milestone in the quest to provide sustainable access to clean water for communities in need.

While emphasising the critical role of such initiatives in addressing the pressing water needs of the communities, Salman highlighted the continued need for similar projects to reach more underserved areas.

Salman said the successful commissioning represents a testament to the power of collaboration and humanitarian efforts in transforming lives and fostering sustainable development.

In their separate remarks, leaders of the beneficiary communities expressed gratitude for the gesture and emphasised the profound impact it will have in their areas.

On his part, Alhaji Abdulraheem Yahaya Akande, the Magaji of Oloje community, said the project has brought joy and relief to them, adding that residents previously had to trek 4-5 miles to access water.
