While the construction of the traditional well represents a tangible effort to improve living conditions and promote sustainable development, it has not been without its critics. Some residents within the Bassa/Dekina Federal constituency have voiced their dissatisfaction with the project, questioning its adequacy in meeting the evolving needs of the community.

One disillusioned constituent, speaking candidly to reporters, expressed disappointment, stating, “This is a project from a House of Representatives member representing Dekina/Bassa Federal constituency, what a shame, not even a mechanized hand pump.” Such sentiments underscore the heightened expectations placed upon elected officials to deliver impactful and transformative initiatives that address the prevailing challenges faced by their constituents.

Similarly, another resident lamented the perceived lack of ambition in the project, remarking, “It’s glaring these politicians don’t rate us, a federal lawmaker constructing well and celebrating it as an achievement.” This sentiment reflects a broader sentiment of disillusionment with the perceived disconnect between political rhetoric and tangible action in addressing the pressing needs of communities.
