The Chairman, Iwajowa Local Government Area of Oyo State, Honourable Modepoola Egunjobi, has commended the state governor, Senator Abiola Ajimobi, for the ongoing construction works on a water dam at Iganna, a town in the council area.
He noted that the project was significant to the people.
He said the project, when completed, would have multiplier effects on the people of the council area, in terms of provision of potable water and creation of employment opportunities for youths that would engage in irrigation farming.
The chairman made the remarks during the visit of the state Commissioner for Environment, Mr Isaac Ishola, to the dam site.
Egunjobi further noted that the resuscitation of the dam projects has demonstrated the Ajimobi-led administration’s commitment to the welfare of the people and at setting enduring legacy for the coming generation.
Earlier, the commissioner had charged the people to provide necessary support to the contractor and secure all the equipment at the dam for early completion of the project.
