The One Division of the Nigerian Army has donated a hand pump borehole to Unguwar Kanti Village, in Igabi Local Government Area of Kaduna State.
Speaking when he handed over the borehole to the community, the General Officer Commanding 1 Division, Nigerian Army, Major General Adeniyi Oyebade, said the gesture is part of the focus of the present administration in building a cordial military- civil relationship.
The GOC explains that he was touched by reports about the lack of potable water and other basic amenities in the community.
Gen. Oyebade, who addressed the Gbagyi dominated community with the help of an interpreter, assured them that President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration and the respective state governments were working tirelessly to ensure welfare of all Nigerians.
Responding on behalf of the community, Secretary of Rigasa Youth Development, Ibrahim Umar, expressed appreciation to the GOC for giving the community life.
He also used the platform to call on government to come to their aid by providing them with a primary healthcare centre, standard primary school and good road.
The donation of the Borehole is one of the many challenges that this community has been confronted with over the years and they are appealing to the state government to provide them with other basic amenities that will make life for them.
