- Moses Simon has drilled three boreholes for the people of Obagaji in Benue state
- Until this latest development, the people of Obagaji have been drinking from the rivers
- Moses has been impressive for FC Nantes and also the Super Eagles of Nigeria
People of Obagaji community in Agatu local government area of Benue state have been thrown into wide jubilation after Super Eagles winger Moses Simon provided three boreholes for them.
Super Eagles star Simon who currently plays for FC Nantes in the French League was not happy that the community never had portable water in its existence.
Moses ordered for three boreholes to be drilled after getting an appeal from the elders of the community about the lack of good water.
A native of Benue State, but has spent the best part of his life in Kaduna State, Simon still considered it a priority to remember the people from the place of his origin.
Chief James Ocheche who is the community head in Obagaji expressed appreciation to Simon on behalf of the whole people in the town.
"We have been without water for as long as we have existed as a community.
We depend on rain water as well as what we get from our stream. Once the raining season is over, we depend on the water source known as the ewu and from ages we have been depending on it like that,'' Ocheche explained according to reports gathered.
Recently, Simon also gave some internally displaced people of Southern Kaduna the sum of N500,000 for clothes and food.

And since age is on his side, Chelsea may be looking for his signature in future depending on the manager that will be in charge.
