He said that the state had substantial target on goal seven of the MDGs on environmental sustainability.
“In 2011, we constructed 40 solar bole holes. In 2012, we did over 50 and currently we are working to attain the level of another 50.
“Today, those villages have water to drink because it is constructed by solar energy. In terms of water, we have done a lot to ensure that our people have portable water.
“We make sure it circulates to areas where it will allow people leaving around the community to have access to it.
“It was dug deep in order to have good water for the people, so we are providing the best water for our people,’’ he said.
Akpan said that the MDGs office had embarked on sensitisation of the entire communities to ensure that the state improved on sanitation.
“The MDGs office had intervened in investing on Ventilated Improved Pit toilets (VIP).
“When we find out that some communities don’t have good toilet, we provide them with more VIP toilets, so we have been able to tackle that issue.
“I believe we no longer have such cases because we intervene in most of the communities that don’t have good toilets.
