NPA Resucitates Apapa Water Work
By Okezie Nnadi
The Nigerian Ports Authority, (NPA), has resuscitated the 2.4 million gallons per day Apapa Water Works, which has been moribund since 2012.
Speaking during the handover of the resuscitated facility in Apapa, the Managing Director of NPA, Mohammed Bello Koko, said the gesture was “responding to the existential needs of our operating environment is a top priority on our corporate social responsibility agenda, and this explains why we gave speedy approval to the request for resuscitation of the Apapa Water Works, which had been moribund since 2012.”
This development came 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 incinerator in Africa for efficient waste management by the Koko-led administration.
The Managing Director, 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.
