In efforts to tackle water shortage usually experienced during dry season by residents in Gusau, Zamfara State capital and its environs, the state government has released N111 million to the Ministry of Water Resources for the expansion of water pipelines from Koramar Wanke and Yarkusa reservoir directly to the water board.

The State Commissioner for Water Resources, Alhaji Sanda Muhammad Danjari, disclosed this yesterday while conducting journalists on an inspection visit to the project site. He said the project is expected to be completed before the end of this month.

He added that the project is being managed by a seven-member committee set up by the state governor, Alhaji Abdul’aziz Yari Abubakar, in line with his commitment to ensure residents of Gusau get access to potable water.

Danjari said when completed, the project will ensure that the acute water shortage being experienced by the communities is addressed.

He said the state government will strive to ensure similar projects are executed in all the 14 local councils of the state before 2019.
