Nigeria: 'Kado, Gwagwa Water Shortages Due to Infrastructure Upgrade'

The FCT Minster, Senator Bala Mohammed, yesterday explained that the recent shortages of pipe borne water at Karmo, Gwagwa and other surrounding communities was as a result of infrastructural upgrade.

The Minster, who commended the affected communities for their patience and understanding, assured that the major upgrade of the infrastructure will soon be completed and normal supply will resume.

His words: "The upgrade would be completed within two weeks thereby allowing normal and improved water supply to the affected communities".

The Minister informed that as work on the upgrade continues, the administration has put some remedial measures on ground by rationing water supply to the affected communities through a dedicated water pipe lane servicing the Kado District to minimize the hardship.

According to him, when the upgrade work is completed, there will be improved and uninterrupted pipe borne water supply to the affected communities.
