Reacting to one of the pictures captioned: “See why Its good here”, one Facebook user, Sanni Aremu Taylor, blamed the electorate for allegedly making wrong choice which he said gave birth to bad leaders.
He wrote, “In my view, this is the product of inappropriate decision making on the part of electorate. Many people vote without knowing the reason why they vote, rather they vote because they receive gratification and the result is what we see here and more of this in all sectors of Nigeria.”
Another, Muyiwa Yussuf, went down memory lane saying the state has been battling water scarcity for ages.
“While growing up in Oko Erin in Ilorin this scenario then was a usual occurence(sic) am talking on late 70s to early 80s. What a retrogressive country we are .”
Another commentator, Mohammed Abdulkadir Ibrahim, surprisingly linked Senate President Bukola Saraki to the water problem in the state.  He said,  “What is good about the picture? Most unfortunate of our situations in Kwara is that those benefiting from Saraki are not even from kwara, Kogi benefited more than kwara.”
In his own view, one Bidemi Oshebeyo said, “When our political leaders tell lies, we know that they are lying, yet we keep quiet. It is baffling.”
So also, one of the picture was said to be a scene of residents of Offa Local Government Area of the state taking turn to fetch water from tankers  purportedly  brought to the area by Dr. Muyideen Akorede,  the Senior Special Assistant on Media and Communications to Governor Fatah Ahmed.
