Nigeria to have adequate water supply by 2025
Minister of Water Resources, Mrs Sarah Och-ekpe had assured that the challenges facing the water sector in the country would be over by 2025.
Och-ekpe urged participants at the forum organized to study the document for water policy in the state and come up with a policy for better water services.
Plateau State governor, Mr Jonah Jang who was represented by the Secretary to the State Government (SSG), Professor Shedrack Best, blamed the cause of inadequate water supply on outdated equipment, shortage of manpower, among others.
According to him, his administration had awarded N8 billion contract to enhance quality water supply within the state. He added that the state was also in partnership with other foreign non-governmental organizations (NGOs), to provide quality water to the people in order to eradicate water borne diseases in the State.
