The two identical projects located in the Odo Ayedun and Oke Ako communities have a standard borehole 328 feet deep supported by a solar powered pump of over 400 feet capacity. Each facility comprises a 5,000 liters capacity ground tank that first steps down the water received from the water table before transmitting through two fiber cylinder bottle water treatment plants, and then sends the water to the 10,000 liters overhead tank before delivery to the water point platform where individuals in the communities can then collect clean water. Both are powered by state of the art energy efficient solar panels.

Bizzell, in recognition of his contribution to the development of the community. Dr. Bizzell, an African-American who traces his ancestry to Nigeria through ancestry DNA testing was also named ‘Ọmọ́wálé’ and welcomed as a son of the community.

The Ekiti First Lady H.E. Erelu Bisi Fayemi, on behalf of the Government of Ekiti State, thanked Bizzell for the kind gesture and appealed to them to favorably consider scaling up the intervention to benefit more communities. In her words, “You will find the Government and people of Ekiti state – the land of honor – to be people of integrity, who will always follow through with commitments they make to you and ensure such interventions are protected and well maintained.”

Mr. Akin Rotimi, a community leader and facilitator of the project stated that “the initiative goes a long way in consolidating the cordial relationship between the Federal Republic of Nigeria and the United States of America and is a demonstration of citizen diplomacy championed by well-meaning Americans in collaboration with Nigerians who have worked together to deliver the project”.
