Nigerians have taken to social media to react after Abia State Governor, Alex Otti created first ever water fountain in the state. A video shared online showed some residents of the state jubilating as they stood in front of the water fountain to take photos. An X user @NoNonsensezone, who shared the video, wrote, “Igbos are joyously celebrating a water fountain that just got built in Abia state Thousands of Igbos flock to the new tourist center to take pictures and videos” The development sparked mixed reactions as some netizens berated the people of Abia State for the celebration while others questioned the value of the water fountain to the state.
