2011 – 2012
The Committee started as Monitoring Committee. The assignments were to:
- ascertain the status and functionality of all Boreholes, deepwells and toilets donated to Palaces, Schools, Communities and markets within the Sagamu Local Government,
- make recommendation for repairs and renovation of such projects where necessary,
The Monitoring Committee consisting of management staff of Lafarge Cement WAPCO and representatives of the council visited all the School concerned, markets, palaces and communities where water projects were donated to beneficiary Institutions between 2007 and 2011 by Lafarge WAPCO. The survey took the committee to 48 Schools, 12 Palaces, 2 Markets, 12 Communities, 2 Motor Parks and 2 other Institutions (High Court, Sagamu and Vigilante Outfit in GRA, Sagamu) 78 projects in all.
Of all the projects visited, only 3 Palaces, 1 market and 2 Communities passed the test of functionality. Others were in different stages of dilapidation. Worst hit were primary Schools and Communities where water projects donated to them had not worked since their inception.
The Committee submitted it’s report to the Council with the following recommendations
- That no new project should be embarked upon until the existing ones were fully rehabilitated.
- That the Council through its appropriate organs should undertake and supervise all aspects of renovations and rehabilitation of the dilapidated projects.
- That all rehabilitated projects should be properly handed over to the beneficiary Agencies. Those receiving the project should be made to complete and sign a prescribed Form.
- That representative of the donor agency should be carried along.
The Executive Committee of the Council accepted all the recommendations and went further to translate the Monitoring Committee into the Implementation Committee for the purpose of implementing the recommendations.
