Eruwa Dam: OYHA Speaker Promises Government Intervention
Pursuant to the request of the people of Ibarapa East State Constituency to make Eruwa Water Supply Scheme functional, the Speaker, Oyo State House of Assembly, Mr. Adebo Ogundoyin has promised the state government intervention on the scheme.
Mr. Ogundoyin stated that the resuscitation of the Eruwa Dam is imperative at this point in time for human and agricultural needs of the area.
The Speaker gave the assurance during an unscheduled visit to dam in response to the request of the people of the area.
The meeting was one of the fallouts of the Town Hall Meeting held at Eruwa, where the Eleruwa of Eruwa, Oba Samuel Adegbola Akindele and some of the stakeholders in the constituency called on the state government to make the dam functional.
Mr. Ogundoyin, who was conducted round facilities at the Eruwa Dam by one of the workers, Mr. Isaiah Emado, said there was the need for the state government to upgrade and repair facilities at the dam.
The Speaker maintained that it was unfortunate that such a huge project is wasting and rotting away when it could be used to improve the lives of residents of the area.
