Since the outbreak of Coronavirus disease in 2019, health experts revealed the critical role of water in mitigating the disease.

Every home, market, hospital, church, school and of course all public gatherings were advised by governments to amongst other things provide functional running water in their premises.

In Anambra State, the Governor and government were far ahead. This was revealed during a Media chat recently with the Honourable Commissioner for Water Resources and Public Utilities, Engr. Emeka Ezenwanne in his office at Government House, Awka.

According to Engr. Ezenwanne, the Obiano administration had shown visionary leadership in all sectors which resulted in the effective management of the pandemic.

Explaining, the commissioner said that On May 18, 2020, Governor Obiano commissioned the Otuocha Regional Water Scheme. A project built by his administration and expected to supply water to about six communities.
Also on Same day, the governor equally commissioned the renovated Obizi Regional Water Scheme at Uga, Aguata Local Government Area with about 45km reticulation network. The water project he informed was a partnership between the state government and European Union and will serve more than sixteen communities around that council area

Ezenwanne also stated that the state government has installed in the various communities over 150 individual boreholes and rehabilitated about 100 with solar systems while reiterating the commitment of the state government in reviving the greater Onitsha Water Scheme. A project he said would be fully functional in few months to come.

He maintained that there is hardly any community in the state without a functional water facility provided by the state government and therefore called on citizens to take ownership of public facilities in their communities and maintain it for the benefit of the people.
