This is coming after it was reported that findings revealed  that 69 million Nigerians  or 1 in 3 (35.0 percent) of the population, has no access to safe water while  less than 1 in 10 (9.2 percent) of households drink safe water.

These and other findings are from the 2016/2017 Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey, MICS, carried out by the National Bureau of Statistics, NBS, and the National Primary Healthcare Development Agency, NPHDA,  in collaboration with the United Nations Children’s Fund, UNICEF.

The National survey which reveals the country’s progress and lapses in key areas of development also show that 2 out of every 3 households (64.1 percent) use improved water sources while a little more than one-third (35.9 percent) used improved sanitation compared to  58.5 percent and 31 percent respectively in 2011.

  1. This is quite surprising. I think the place is still underdeveloped and it’s a remote area in Ibadan.

  2. How will they put well in the middle of the road. Anyways, the road is not tarred. When the government is ready now they will do something about it. The water cannot be safe.

  3. I actually thought from the caption
    The water literally appeared all of a sudden in the middle of the road.
    The community is funny
    Is that the best they could do
    In times of siting a water well?

  4. This is quite surprising. I think the place is still underdeveloped and it’s a remote area in Ibadan which needs development

  5. How come it’s still in the middle of the road since all this while? Has vehicles not been passing through there? This is underdevelopment

  6. How come it’s still in the middle of the road since all this while? Has vehicles not been passing through there? This is underdevelopment

  7. If the citizens cannot boast of good and clean water for use, then its a big shame to the government in the state concerned.

  8. What’s the government doing to the plight of her citizens towards providing good water. This shows this politicians don’t care for the poor. Common water the government can’t provide. Is a shame.

  9. I think the well have long been dug before the road was constructed ,,since water is scarce, they decided not to destroy it

  10. was this intentionally build in the middle of the road? God have mercy on us. hope FG re seeing this?

  11. This is too funny..HV not seen anything like dis before the government should do something about this

  12. This is serious o. Is that they are looking for good site to dig the well or something. Government should intervern, it’s really bad

  13. There is nothing that you will not find in Ibadan. Ibadan is a city of primitive life that modern developments have tried to rejuvenate to present day life with modern value…

  14. This is madness. What will it cost to close up the well. If it is the only spot that water can be found, then the road should be redirected.

  15. In the middle of the road ke? Na wa o. Hope government can quickly aid these people cos it s not funny at all.

  16. Am surprised at this, was the well dung before the creation of that road?
    When that road was constructed why didn’t the road constructors close it down?

  17. How can this type of thing should be said of a country like Nigeria in the 21st century? Well in the middle of the road and 35% of the population has no access to safe water. Our government should do something about this.

  18. So what does that mean, witchcraft or something? The road must been expanded encroaching on the well’s space

  19. Nigeria is too develop to be having water problem,government need to do something about it especially for those in the rural areas.

  20. This is quite disgraceful for a country like Nigeria. Please government should take measures to make people safe living in those areas.
