Oyo Assembly summons Water Corporation boss, contractors over failed N10 billion water projects

The Oyo State House of Assembly has summoned the chairman, Water Corporation of Oyo State, contractors, officials of the corporation over incomplete and abandoned water projects awarded at over N10 billion.

This was the resolve of the Assembly following the presentation of a report by the ad-hoc committee of the Assembly on water resources that embarked on oversight to water projects across the state.

Assembly had in December 2019 launched an investigation into water projects in the state when acting Managing Director of the Water corporation agency, Samuel Adegboyega, upon invitation to plenary, said that 12 out of the state’s 22 waterworks were functioning and that residents of the state enjoy regular water supply.

The committee also identified the failure of the Sanusi mini water supply scheme; Owode estate mini water supply, Ogboro; Iseyin Waterworks; water projects in Eruwa, Oyo, Saki, Alabata and Pade.

Commenting on the findings, Speaker of the Assembly, Honourable Adebo Ogundoyin said the failure and abandonment of water projects showed that the immediate past administration was unconcerned about the need for accountability.
