  OSUN State governor, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola yesterday flagged-off the N48.7Billion Ilesa water supply and sanitation project.

The water project, with 60,000 cubic meters, when completed in 24 months will supply water to residents of Ilesa and its environs effectively on a daily basis.

Aregbesola, at the ceremony, noted that the project which will gulp a total of N48.7bn  when fully completed will be the largest single project in the Western region.

The governor, who said he had approached the Islamic Development Bank for assistance on the project as far back as 2011, expressed delight that the project is coming to reality.

He said: “I am happy this is happening today, because the state has been on it for a long time.  This journey started as far back as 2011when I went to the Islamic Development Bank for financial assistance on the project and I am happy it is a reality today.”

“I am proud to say that this water project is the largest singular project in the whole of the western region, the project when fully completed would have gulped a total of 48.7billion naira.

“When completed, it will be able to supply at least 60million litres of water of water per day”, the Governor stated. (Vanguard News)

It would be the biggest singular water project since the creation of Osun state in 1991.

Speaking during the programme to kickstart the construction of Transmission Mains and Booster Pumping Station and construction of three NOS. 10,000M3 concrete reservoirs, Aregbesola hinted that the federal government had expended N8.7billion on the dam project at Kajola, just as he said that Islamic Development Bank (IDB) has also given the state a sum of N23billion.

The governor said the state would need N15.31billion to complete the project, with a view to ensure that people have access to 60million cubic litres water per day.

While maintaining that the contractor had promised to complete the project in 24 months, hence, Aregbesola expressed optimism that the project would be ready by December 2017.

According to him, “We have spent N57million for compensation. It remains only one person which is CAC prayer mountain and the monarch will give him N3.424million on our behalf. Three pumps will be located at the booster station at Iloba. Each reservoir has the capacity for 10million litres, hence we will have 30million cubic litres per day in the reservoirs. 

“It remains distribution network which is the last part of it that we are yet to get money for. We are going to make it public for people to bid. Whoever wants to channel water to people and sell would be allowed to run pipes. We have written the World Bank, the federal government and Islamic Development Bank for loans.”

The consultant for the water project, Engineer Tawa Williams, said the provision of good water was part of six integral action plan of Aregbesola, assuring that the physical aspect of the project would be completed in 2019 and “it is going to be run by a consultant for five years. It is not a dividend of democracy. It is not going to be free”. (Tribune)
