A retired Civil Servant at the Oyo State Water Corporation Prince Wasiu Adegbite has decried poor access to potable water in rural areas across the country.

Prince Adegbite who made this known while speaking with Pensioners FM blamed the menace on failure by the three tiers of government to live up to their responsibilities.

“There is shortage of manpower in the sector; many water pipes are in deplorable state so that is why I said scarcity of pipe borne water is a general problem”.

Prince Adegbite urged government to urgently address the situation.
