Radio Report: Borehole and emerging threat of earth tremors

It is common knowledge that the inability of governments to maintain as well as expand water infrastructures built around independence some 58 years ago a contributory factor to the proliferation of boreholes across the country, as people make desperate efforts to provide water for themselves.

But, with recent cases of earth tremor in Abuja, which experts say could be the result of haphazard extraction of underground resources, it is becoming obvious to Nigerians that drilling of boreholes is another time bomb that they should avoid.

How then will Nigerians survive in the absence of the borehole, which is a major source of portable water to city dwellers in particular?

Correspondent Innocent Onoh in this report that explores boreholes as a major source of water in Lagos attempts to find an answer to this poser.
