Abuja Jan. 16, 2018 (NAN) Gov. Aminu Masari of Katsina State says the state government has expended more than N10 billion on provision of potable water to the people of the state.

Masari made this known during his re-election campaign rally in Charanchi Local Government Area of the state on Wednesday.

« The state government used the funds to expand existing water sources and establish new ones to satisfy the water needs of its citizens.

« The state government expended over N5 billion to upgrade and rehabilitate Ajiwa Dam water works that provides water to Katsina and environs.

« The Ajiwa Dam was established in 1974 when Katsina was a Local Government under defunct North-Central state.

« Since then, no government had made plans to expand the dam and the dam has failed to satisfy the water demand of Katsina as a state capital.

« The state has used over N3 billion to rehabilitate Daura and Malumfashi water works.

« We have also pumped over N3 billion to drill over 1,250 motorised boreholes across the state » he said

The governor further said that any government that provided potable water had prevented water borne diseases by 75 per cent.

He called on the citizens of the state to protect all water projects in their towns and villages against vandalism.

The chairman of Masari Re-election Campaign Council, Alhaji Mustapha Inuwa, called on the electorate to massively vote APC at both the Federal and state levels.

« Our party is ready to provide the dividends of democracy needed by Nigerians, » he said. (NAN)
