“The Corporation has the support of the Lagos State Governor, His Excellency, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode to resuscitate 48 Mini/Macro Waterworks in Lagos State”.
The Waterworks include: Badore, Lekki, V/I. Ikeja, Epe, Ikoyi, Apapa, Bariga, Surulere, Ikate, Igando, Ojoo, Ajangbadi, Ikorodu, Shomolu, Onikan, Eredo, Coker Aguda, Magodo, Ojokoro, Meiran, Ajegunle, Iwaya, Ijora Badia, Alexandra, Isheri-Osun, Iponri etc.

“On completion of these Waterworks with design capacity of about 100MGD, the water demand gap in the State will be drastically reduced”.
“I want to assure the general public that we shall continue to stand by our Mandate “to provide potable water to you all”.
While addressing the intending contractors at the Conference, he restated his commitment towards providing quality work and implored the prospective/intending contractors to do a diligent work, because it’s not a business as usual.
We are making efforts that only competent contractors are given opportunity to execute the waterworks projects, he said.
In his statement, the Corporation, COO, Engr. Deji Johnson warned that “the project is not a project for project sake, it is a project for improvements on the existing waterworks and towards optimal working performance/capacity of the existing facilities”.
It is a test case job for better performance, he concluded.
