When a large pipe belonging to the Water Corporation of Oyo State (WCOS) burst on Thursday morning, residents of the area along Queen Cinema – Dugbe highway thought officials of the corporation would spring into action because of the location of the damage. But as at 12 noon when this report is being published, the road is still flooded and passersby including individuals on bikes and cars are getting free shower along the road.
I happen to fall in the category of those who are getting wet on the highway. As long as you are on a bike, there is no way you won’t get wet.
A cross section of individuals in the area that spoke to IBPulse.com on the experience slammed the water corporation for its inept attitude.
“I never knew there is tap water in Oyo state talk less of Ibadan. Why is it that the water that ought to be used in homes are flooding major roads? The corporation should wake up to its duties and repair its old and tired pipes across the state,” a male respondent said.
