Trainees of KWATRECO partner lawmaker to fix boreholes in Kwara communities

The trainees of the Kwara Training, Repair, Empowerment and Community-ownership (KWATRECO)have begun the repairs of the faulty boreholes in various communities of the 16 local government areas of the state

This is coming following the empowerment training of the youths by the Kwara State Government to engage the youths in the state

The Informant247 gathered that public infrastructure, such as water facilities, had received prompt attention as communities and public officeholders engaged KWATRECO trainees.


One of the participants, Amidu Idris from Ile-Apa in Ilorin East Local Government Area, with the support of other youths, had successfully fixed two faulty boreholes in the community weeks after the completion of the training.

Meanwhile, a member representing Isin constituency in the Kwara State House Assembly, Honourable AbdulRazaq Omotosho Bellumi, had also engaged the KWATRECO’s trainees in fixing nonfunctional boreholes in his constituency in a bid to compliment efforts of the Kwara State Government.


Honourable Bellumi, satisfied with the trainees’ performance, provided the funds to repair boreholes in the Oke-origin and Iwo communities.

Speaking on the intervention, one of the trainees, Adefila Samson, said, “After the Kwara State Government had trained us on borehole repair and maintenance through KWATRECO, we felt we should reach out to Honourable Bellumi to assist communities whose boreholes were nonfunctional. He bought into this idea and engaged us to fix boreholes in Oke-origin and Iwo communities in Isin Local Government Area.”

“I wish to commend Mallam AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq’s led administration for the empowering training which allowed us to acquire the skill. As a team, we were so happy that we could fix those boreholes independently,” he added.

Also speaking, another participant, Adeyemi Omotoyosi, described the training as an ‘eye-opener’, saying, “With the support of our lawmaker, we had successfully demonstrated what we learnt through the KWATRECO project as we also used the tools the government gave to our local government area for the training.”

The trainees, therefore, called for more support and charged the government to provide more tools for each of the local government areas for them to be more engaged.
