Relief has come for Apapa residents in Lagos as the Mohammed Bello Koko-led management of the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA) has resuscitated the 2.4 million gallons per day capacity Apapa Water Works which had become dilapidated since 2012.

Speaking during handover of the rehabilitated facility in Apapa on Thursday, Bello-Koko said the intervention is part of NPA’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CRS) to the immediate communities.
He said: “Responding to the existential needs of our operating environment is top priority on our Corporate Social Responsibility agenda.

“And this explains why we gave speedy approval to the request of resuscitation of the Apapa Water Works which had been moribund since 2012.”

This development is coming on the heels of the rehabilitation of the Accident and Emergency Ward at the Apapa General Hospital and the acquisition and deployment of a first-of-its-kind in Africa incinerator for efficient waste management by Koko-led administration.

The Managing Director of Lagos State Water Corporation, the Chairperson of Apapa Local Government, Hon. (Mrs) Idowu Shebanjo accompanied by the Chairman and officials of the Apapa Residents Association were full of appreciation to the NPA management.

They, however, promised proper maintenance of the facility for sustainability.
