Reveal locations of 332 boreholes, Osun CSC tells Adeleke

By Michael ofulue, Osogbo

The Osun Civil Societies Coalition (OCSC) has asked Adeleke to provide the location of the boreholes in each of the 332 wards.

According to the OCSC, providing the specific location of each of the boreholes will enhance transparency and build public confidence in the current administration.

The OCSC, in a letter signed by its Chairman, Comrade Waheed Lawal and Secretary, Emmanuel Olowu, asked Adeleke to be more transparent in governance.

Findings revealed that the letter which was dated November 1, 2023 was received at the Governor’s Office on same date.

But the state government was yet to make the location of the boreholes public as demanded by the OCSC.

The letter reads in part: “You will recall that you celebrated 100 days of your administration with a borehole project reportedly sunk in each of the 332 wards in Osun State. You equally announced that each of the boreholes cost a sum of N1,500,000 during your public engagement progamme tagged Ipade Imole in October.

“In the wake of your plan to kickstart the second face of the borehole project as announced during the launch of the N100 billion infrastructure plan, it has become expedient as the eyes and ears of the public to say that majority of the residents of the state are very skeptical on the borehole project.

“This is because the process and implementation of the first phase of the project are not known to the public. May we also state that the civil society groups in Osun are also unable to track the project.

“Going forward; we humbly request that you make public the specific location where the boreholes are located in each of the 332 wards. This will enhance transparency and build public confidence in your administration.

“Mr Governor, it is important to know the exact location of these boreholes; a section of the society already holds the impression that they do not exist, while some others believe that the project is a mere conduit pipe.

“While we await your response to this, by providing the exact location of the boreholes through any medium convenient for the government”.
