The Lagos state government has started network extension of water distribution to Ogudu Ori-Oke and Alapere areas of the Lagos metropolis.

The Managing Director of the Lagos Water Corporation (LWC), Mr Muminu Badmus announced this at the Stakeholders’ Meeting on the Network Extension of Water Distribution to Ogudu and Alapere. According to him, the project will connect about 700 households and the corporation is expecting 30,000 consumers from the two areas.

“From the Ogudu roundabout, there is already a 2-diameter pipe, from which water from Adiyan will be connected.“A bigger pipe will be connected to the 2-diameter pipe, to cover 26 streets in the first phase of the project. Some Streets with inadequate water supply will be connected to the new Network Extension, to enable them enjoy the fully-charged water mains. Alapere will also be taken into consideration, so also Igboho and Oshodi areas along the axis,’’ he said.

Badmus said that upon completion of the project, the corporation expected the residents to protect and guard it jealously.
