3 “Seadogs identified an urgent need for Jeje community for the provision of a clean source of portable water for the people.
4 “A borehole that will provide clean water to the community with a mechanised pump to deliver water from the borehole was decided upon.
7 “Within five days, we were able to provide two manual borehole water pumps with complete water tanks to help the people.’’
8 He said this was to help the people of Jeje community to overcome the terrible problem of having to rely on a stagnant body of water as their main source of water.
9 “The people of this community do not feel the presence of government until during election when they come to make promises and disappear after that.
10 “Government must not only be accountable to the people only during election, having portable is the responsibility of government,’’ he said.
11 He urged government to wake up to its responsibility in all ramifications and be responsible to the people.
12 Oduche-Ebele said Destined Child International Foundation was moved to partner with NAS based on the pathetic situation of Jeje Community.
13 Represented by the organisation’s Project Cordinator, Mr Stanley Nwankwo, said that most people who lived in the rural community always believed that “it is only international donors that are solely responsible for most of the interventions they get’’.
15 Oduche-Ebele called on rural dwellers to disabuse their minds from primitive thinking that “it is only international donors that are sponsoring all the NGOs ìn Nigeria.’’ (
