Assembly sets up committee on water shortage in Kano state

The Kano State House of Assembly, has set up an ad hoc committee to investigate causes of inadequate water supply in the state.

This followed the adoption of a motion on inadequate water supply in the state by Alhaji Abubakar Danladi (APC-Gaya) and three others, during plenary, on Tuesday.

The other lawmakers included –Mr Nuhu Achika (APC-Wudil), Mr Abdul Madari (APC -Warawa) and Mr Mu’azzam El-yakub (APC- Dawakin Kudu).

Presenting the motion, Danladi, said that inadequate water supply had caused serious hardship among residents.

According to him, people of the affected areas have to walk 2 to 3 kilometres to fetch water, which may not be hygienic.

“The Wudil water treatment plant which used to supply portable drinking water to the communities is no longer functioning effectively due to lack of modern equipment and other factors.

“Therefore, we are appealing to the State Government to ensure the provision of modern equipment to enable the plant provide us with potable drinking water,” he said.

The committee headed by the Deputy Chief Whip of the House, Alhaji Hayatu Musa, (APC -Kura/Garin Malam), was given two weeks to report back to the House.

Similarly, the House further urged the government to ensure completion of drainage work in Gwale Local Government Area (LGA) which was abandoned several years ago.

This followed the adoption of a motion by Mr Yusuf Babangida (APC-Gwale), asking government to intervene over the abandoned project at Sabon Sara, Hausawa Lokon Liman and Diso Quarters.

The House had also on July 8, urged the government to intervene and ensure adequate water supply in the Kano metropolis.
