Nigeria’s Emergency Water supply programme underway

by With Agency report

The Nigerian Government recently unveiled what it called a 12-month emergency plan to improve water supply and sanitation across the country.

The country’s Water Resources Minister, Engineer Sulaiman Adamu said about N1.9trn was required for Nigeria's target of portable water supply and sanitation in the next 15 years.

"From 1992, for instance, 30% of the Nigerian population was enjoying water supply through pipe-borne water which we could consider as adequate water in terms of quantity and quality.

"But today, probably only seven per cent or least of the urban cities as of 2015 had been enjoying urban water supply through pipe borne water which we feel is approaching a crisis situation.

“I also informed the Federal Executive Council on the need to step up investments because we need about N1.9trillion in the next 15 years to be able to meet the SDG target for both water supply and sanitation,’’ he said.

The minister said the emergency plan would be inaugurated in 2018 and followed by a five-year recovery programme to last up to 2020 with the support of financial institutions.<
