The Convener of the centre, Kayode Oyin Zubair disclosed that they, members of Association of Plumbers and Kwara State Water Corporation collaborated to deliver potable and safe water to affected communities.
Kayode Oyin Zubair noted that government cannot singly tackle all the challenges facing the society, therefore individuals and groups must support her efforts.
Some of the communities where water was restored through fixing of bursted pipes include Adeta, Alore, Idigba, Magaji Baboko, Agbooba, Surulere, Agbo -Ogba and Kuntu areas among others.
After the eight-hour- marathon work by the professional plumbers and youth volunteers, the team in company of the Permanent Secretary Ministry of Water Resources and General Manager, Kwara State Water Corporation briefed the Chief of Staff to the Governor, Adisa Logun who represented the Governor to monitor the selfless gesture.

The excited residents also praised Governor Abdulrazaq for taking prompt actions to restore water supply to Ilorin and other parts of the state after several months of hardship.
”Water is life! it’s been long that we get water from the corporation. I don’t believe it, something that could be fixed in less than one hour was left unattended for months.
Thank God we elected a kindhearted man as governor. God will bless Governor Abdulrazaq for supporting your group.’ One resident told newsmen.
The KYC team will continue the exercise in Offa, Omu-aran and other identified communities that need urgent attention.
