Environmentalist Advocates Partnership for Provision of Automated Water Facility

By Sandra Ngo

For effective war against the spread of coronavirus in Rivers State, an environmentalist, Mr Napoleon Adah, has called for provision of more automated running water facilities.

Making the call while fielding questions from RCCE Media team, Mr Adah noted that since regular washing of hands is one of the key measures of preventing Covid-19, ensuring that the automated running water facilities are everywhere will go a long way in reducing Covid-19 spread in Rivers State.

Adah the environmentalist, who is the acting general manager of Rivers State Rural Water and Sanitation Agency (RUWASSA), stated that although his agency is set to provide as many of the facilities as possible, a synergy with other organizations, groups or individuals will make it easier to have a wider spread of the facilities in the state.
”I want to say that we are appealing to other key players from the private sector, corporate bodies, individuals, IOCs to come in and see how they can synergize with us in the provision of running water facilities.

”This is because one basic way of preventing Covid-19 is by washing your hands regularly with soap and running water”, he said.

Towards this end, the RUWASSA boss said his Agency is working out modalities to provide the facilities in all schools in Rivers State as its own contribution in combating the virus.

He used the opportunity to commend the state Governor, Nyesom Wike, for what he called the governor’s far-reaching contribution in the fight against Covid-19.

Adah, however, stated that more can still be done in ensuring that the facilities are provided in all schools.
“We know how much His Excellency has put in so far to combat the (Covid-19) pandemic. But he can still do something to ensure that all the schools have the facility”, he said.
