Gbagi women, representing a major tribe that lay claim to the ownership of Abuja before it was made Federal Capital of Nigeria, have turned breadwinners of their families by fetching water at N200 per day for some civil servants in Chibir, a suburb of Kuje Area Council.
Checks by Greenbarge Reporters showed that the women usually trek some distances to get water which they obtain and offload into drums of their customers for fees.
It is learnt that while their husbands relax at home for lack of anything to do as farming season has been suspended for lack of rains, the wives would be on their toes to fend for the families through any legitimate menial jobs.
It was gathered that some Gbagi men married to two or three wives each of who would go out to fetch water for sale to customers.
One of the Gbagi women who simply gave her name as Asabe, told our reporter that she enjoyed fetching water for sale to customers to be able to feed her family, including husband.
Chibiri, a suburb of Kuje in Kuje Area Council of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) lacks government provided pipe borne water.
The small settlement lies along Kuje-gwagwalada road.
