 “No Record Of Illegal Sale Of Assets At Oyo Water Corporation” -Chairman

Contrary to claims by an opposition politician that the Oyo State Water Corporation is engaging in illegal sale of water pipes, the Corporation has come out to clarify that it had only brought out the pipes in the scheme, which had laid fallow in the swamps, for proper counting, audit and accountability.

The Chairman of the Corporation, Dr Adebayo Adepoju, in a statement made available to Newsmen in Ibadan, on Tuesday, September 29, 2020, noted that there is no record of illegal sale of assets belonging to the Corporation; adding that the Corporation has only embarked on an inventory-taking and auditing so as to ascertain and account for all its assets.

The statement further indicated that the claims credited to a chieftain of the Alliance for Democracy (AD), were false and unfounded; while the Chairman assured members of the public that the Corporation remained committed to providing potable water to residents, noting that no amount of lies or character assassination would deter the Corporation from achieving the mandate of potable water for all.

The Corporation’s Boss further explained that the alarm raised about illegal sale of pipes and the picture being circulated on the internet as portraying illegal sale were baseless, as the truck in the circulated picture was, indeed, that of those enlisted by the Corporation to take the pipes from the swamps to another location for proper counting.
