The Engineer in charge of the remarkable project,
The Chairman, Ede North Local Government,
The High Chiefs and Community Leaders here present,
The Executives and the entire members of Adeyemi Community,
Gentleman of the Press,
All other protocols meticulously observed.
It is my pleasure and great privilege to be here today to give this short address on the occasion of the commissioning of a motorized borehole generously provided for the use of the community by one of the most philanthropic international organization Later Day Charity Organization of the Church of Jesus Christ.
First of all, I give all glory and adoration to Almighty, the Benevolent, the merciful, (the first and the last) for His guidance and support in all aspects of our life and endeavours. We thank God for this occasion, for making the water project a reality (Alhamdu Lilahi Robil Alameen).
The significance of this project manifest in the essence of water to human community. Although, water is vital to human existence but several factors or barriers prevent people’s from having access to safe portable water, most especially in developing world. Though, our governments are trying in the area of provision of portable water.
Increase in population and booming megacities without proper sanitation system among other issues remain a problem. This might lead to people polluting water sources with their own waste. Also, industrial and agricultural growth on which the booming population depend add their own pollutant to water supplies. In addition, the effect of climate change, which might lead to coastal dwellers seeing their ground water tainted by brackish flowing water as sea levels rise. Apart from lack of necessary financial resources for the construction of water projects, there is absence of local expertise in the training of local people in basic hygiene and water sanitation.
In this commissioning, the provision of this multimillionaire project by Charity Organization from the Church of Jesus Christ of Later Day Saints had not only removed major barrier but also empowered large members of the community through the rigorous training in basic hygiene in water and sanitation system.
Our appreciation of this project reflect in the centrality of water in every society. According to a report, over 2.5 billions people have no access to adequate sanitation. There is correlation between access to safe water and improved health of the citizenry. This is because water play an important role in the mechanics of the human body. In fact, all the cells and organs functions that make-up our entire anatomy and physiology depend on water for their proper functioning.
The entire community express our profound appreciation of your entire members, most especially the rapport and cordial relationship established with the community. We pray that God will continue to be your guide and pillar of support in all your endeavors.
I want to use this opportunity to acknowledge and appreciate the efforts and the contribution of a friend and a brother, the Head of Department of Water and Environmental Sanitation in the Local Government Service Commission, Comrade (Alh.) Olaoye Ayobami. He not only produce the link, but also play central role in the actualization of the project. May God Almighty continue to be your guide and reward you abundantly.
Finally, I want to plead with the organization for more project of this nature in other areas of this local government. “The greatest deeds in life is the level of our contribution in making life easier, and better to live, when we touch lives by act of donation or charity, providing power supply for the needy and enlighten our souls in the process”. May God Almighty continue to guide and bless everyone who dedicate their life to the helping of others.
Thanks you all.
