Kate Owoko, the Bayelsa lawmaker who built a floating latrine for her people has fired back to Nigerians who expressed anger over how low she went.
She said she built the toilet according to the pressing demand of the women of Okori Ama and Oweidei Ama in Amassoma LGA, southern Ijaw constituency.
“These were the pressing (immediate) need from these women at the time. Due to the terrain of these said compounds, they were in grave need for such toilets to answer to the ‘call-of-nature’“Prior to today these women hard(sic) to expose themselves to unsanitary conditions. Hence, requested particularly for such toilets from their representative”“This should be in no way mistaken(sic) for a constituency project which is her primary duty to her people. We are all aware that her constituency project is on education and it is ongoing”.
