The Nigerian Army Officers’ Wives Association (NAOWA) on Wednesday inaugurated a solar-powered borehole for the barracks community and donated a 32-seater bus for its Army Headquarters Garrison chapter.

 

Speaking at the inauguration in Abuja, the National President of NAOWA, Mrs Salamatu Yahaya, said that the initiative would improve the standard of living in the barracks.

 

“It is my pleasure to be part of the inauguration ceremony of the solar-powered borehole and a 32-seater utility bus by the NAOWA AHQ Garrison Chapter for its members’ use.

 

“The construction of this additional borehole within the barracks to complement other sources of water supply clearly shows the commitment of the Chairperson NAOWA AHQ Garrison Chapter to improving the standard of living in the barracks.

 

“It is also a mark that she is in tune with my vision of Sustaining Legacy and Upholding the Tenets of Unity and Service,” Yahaya said.

 

Yahaya said that the borehole would expand the residents’ access to potable water, in view of the fact that it was solar-powered and would be running at all times.

 

She also said that the 32-seater bus would help to ease the movement of NAOWA members in their activities.

 

Yahaya, while appreciating the Army Headquarters Garrison NAOWA Coordinator, Mrs Asma’u Garba, for the achievements, urged all the beneficiaries of the project to effectively maintain the borehole to enable it to serve its intended purpose.

 

Earlier, Garba said that the borehole project was conceived to address the challenges of water supply in the barracks, while the bus was ease NAOWA members’ movements.

 

She noted that the association did not have enough buses to move members around for its activities.
