He disclosed that he had directed the management of Ogun State Water Corporation (OGSWC) to come up with other water production and distribution infrastructure financing gaps for the government’s intervention

Having identified lack of maintenance of water production and distribution infrastructures as a critical challenge across the state, Dapo tasked the management of the OGSWC to come up with immediate, medium, and long-term solutions with costs and timeframe within the next one week with a view to addressing the problem.
