WATER is critically essential to human life; but it has become a scarce commodity to get among Nigerians in the face of economic hardship.
The effect of COVID-19 has dealt a hard blow on people’s means of livelihood around the world; however, the case appears to be even more devastating as the price of food items, and water, most especially has doubled, threatening to tripe and of care is not taken, quadruple.
When AF24news spoke with Mr Oludare Sunday, who is a business man, he says it is very difficult for him to get potable water, narrating that it was previously sold at ₦10.00 a sachet; but sadly, it is now sold for ₦20.00.
Mr Oludare further stated that water for utilities is also bought for ₦20.00 for 25 litres as it is very scarce to get.
Another man, in Ajegunle Boundary says it’s ₦10.00 for a sachet and that he also buys water for utilities.
