Agbirigidi community gets water empowerment
There was joy unlimited at Agbirigidi village, Oyo State as the hardship associated with getting potable water came to an end for the community when Amo Farm Sieberer Hatchery Limited (Natnudo) commissioned the borehole donated to the village by the Farm.
The Baale of the village, Chief Oluwatosin Aderinko, at the handing over ceremony said he was short of words to express appreciation to the farm which through its magnanimity, had taken away the hardship the villagers have been passing through just to get water for drinking.
According to him, there was no provision of pipe-borne water in the village and it has always been traumatic to get water as villagers had to go the extra mile to source for the essential and inevitable daily need.
He commended the Managing Director of the farm, Dr. Ayoola Oduntan, for being sensitive and compassionate to the villagers by providing for them, one of the essential necessities of life. He lauded the organization for not looking down on the villagers but concentrating on its business and giving consideration to alleviate the problems of the villagers by spending some of its hard-earned revenue to put smiles on their faces.
Aderinko, other sub-village heads, made up of men and women, as well as some of the villagers, We have a loiler project which we have been using to empower rural communities in different parts of the country. It’s also something like we introduce here; to empower the rural women the households to have a small poultry farms in their backyard which they will use to increase the protein intake of their children. You know Nigeria has one of the highest rate of mortality in the world. It is a shame.
