A member of the House of Representatives Umar Mudah Lawal has begun the construction of 10 deep wells in some villages within his constituency.
The honorable member who’s representing Toro Federal Constituency of Bauchi State in the green chamber took to his Twitter account to share the good news and photos of the project as it is in progress.
Umah Mudah disclosed that he embarked on this project by thinking outside the box because traditional wells are often more reliable and last longer than modern water supply systems.
Here’s what he wrote;
“This time we are going outside the box to construct 10 Deep wells in 10 rural towns and villages of Toro LGA. Because traditional wells are often more reliable and last longer than any modern small-scale water supply system.
Most wells today are centuries old and still working.”
“For someone that has to go as far as 10 kilometres to fetch water, a single well close could mean the world. You may not appreciate it but we can’t stand and watch our people suffer. We are looking for ways to ameliorate their situation as we figure out a lasting solution.”
