“What we need is adequate supply of water. Since we have been facing challenges sinking boreholes due to rock.

“I could remember vividly during the last administration, they tried to sink boreholes in this community but the efforts were not in futile due to the rocks.

“So, we are appealing to the present administration under the leadership of Governor Ademola Adeleke to please come to our aid ensuring adequate water supply. We are ready to reciprocate by paying the dues meant for the service.

“Our Governor has been performing wonderfully well in the last one year. And as part of the efforts of Mr Governor, he drilled boreholes across the 332 wards in the state.

“We understand the fact that due to problem of rocks around this place inhabitants of Costain might not be beneficial of the boreholes, but Governor, should make the dam already put in place functional and ensure adequate water supply in the area.

We would continue to support the governor in his bid to transform the state”, he said.
