Pemu Donates Water Project To Delta Community



The founder of Festus Pemu Initiative for Social Development and Peace building and frontline aspirant for the Sapele local government chairmanship position in Delta State, Hon Festus Pemu, has handed over a motorized borehole water project to residents of Oyohen community along Warri – Sapele road, with a promise to reach out to other communities facing similar challenges.

Speaking during the occasion, Pemu stressed the importance of the project to the community, noting that water was one of the most important God-given natural resources.

He, however, reiterated his commitment and dedication to the improvement of the welfare of communities in the area through provisions of basic and social infrastructure as long as God provides.

“i am a bonafide Okpe man, paternally from Amukpe community here and maternally from Elume and by extension, a member of every community that makes up the local government area. Upon my visit and conversation with one of the indigenes here, he told me about the plight they were facing and I decided to donate this water project to them.

“I have also discovered that in the area of power, the community has been suffering from electricity for sometime now and by the grace of God, I have promised to bring light to the village,” noting that one doesn’t have to be rich to contribute one’s quota to the society.
