The Mohammed Bello Koko-led Management of the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA) has resuscitated the 2.4 million gallons per day Apapa water eorks that has been moribund since 2012.
Speaking during handover of the resuscitated facility in Apapa on Thursday June 22, 2023, Mohammed Bello Koko 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 MD 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 and assured of the proper maintenance of the facility to assure sustainability.
