While reacting to the video, the Commissioner, on behalf of the government, took responsibility for the welfare of the people.
He also promised to lead a team from the Ministry of Water Resources to visit the Dagbalodo community on Tuesday to address the issue along with other such requests elsewhere in the state.
The Commissioner however, fulfilled the promise on Tuesday by visiting Dagbalodo and other villages in Patigi, an act ENetSuD described as commendable, in a statement by its Director, Community Services, Abdulkareem Eyitayo Abubakar.
