Safe water for additional 3,000 communities in Bauchi


About 1.5 million additional rural people in 3, 000 communities of Bauchi state are expected to have access to effective sanitation and consume safe water year round under the rural water supply project.
Under the programme which implementation in 14 local government areas of the state comes into effect next month is being supported by the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA).
According to the Rural Water Supply and Sanitation Agency (RUWASA) General Manager, Eng. Garba Babaji Magaji, the DFID/UNICEF has since 2010 been supporting Sanitation, Hygiene and Water in Nigeria (SHAWN) in five local government areas of Dass, Gamawa, Warji, Shira and Toro.
He attributed the investment and support benefits derivable to the state to the strides and laudable actions of the Yuguda-led administration that attracted the attention and interest of the International donors.
Magaji recalled that the Yuguda administration in Bauchi state had since its inception in 2007 came with a vision, passion and commitment to increasing access to safe water supply and sanitation in line with the MDGs and National WASH policy.
Eng. Garba Magaji explained that the Yuguda vision and commitment led the government to embark on sector reform process that resulted in the establishment of the Rural Water Supply and Sanitation Agency (RUWASA) in Bauchi state in 2009.
Magaji said the programme was further boosted with corresponding annual increase in budgetary allocations to the agency and in addition to approving a State WASH policy.
