As part of efforts at combating water borne diseases and ensuring that people have access to portable water, the Legislator representing Imeko/Afon State Constituency, Hon. Jemili Akingbade, has sunk 12 motorised boreholes and repaired three existing ones.
Hon. Akingbade, who is also the Minority Whip of the Ogun State House of Assembly revealed this at the thanksgiving service and reception held in his honour at Owode -Afon in Imeko/Afon Local Government Area of the State.

Some of the communities that benefitted from the boreholes included; Iwoye, Okuta, Moriwi, Falola Babalawo, Gada, Araromi, Ogunte, Oloro-Akinwale and Areji, while repairs are currently ongoing in other zones across the constituency.
