Posted on

The Oba of Onigbongbo in Ikeja LGA of Lagos state, Oba Munirudin Yusuf has ordered his subjects not to pay any more water bill brought them by officials of the Lagos state Water Board.In an interview with NAN yesterday, Oba Yusuf said the state water board has refused for a long time not, to provide his kingdom with water but continuously bring water bill. He said many letters have been written to the water board complaining about their situation without any favorable outcome.”The Water Corporation has continued to bombard the community which has not benefited from its services with outrageousbills. For this, I have ordered every household to disregard such bills while we manage our pipe borne water.”he saidHe said the lack of water has made every household dig up a borehole in their compound which will serve as a source of water.”As a way out, the community has independently dug boreholes because of the serious challenge encountered in getting water. We want the state government to fulfil its promises on the provision of pipe borne water to allay water problem at Onigbongbo”.
