Acute water shortage hitting Plateau State Capital and environs is catching the attention of the State House of Assembly. The legislature is asking for the immediate investigation into the remote causes of the problem as reported by our Plateau State correspondent. In spite of the enormous amounts sunk into water projects in Plateau State, portable water is still beyond the reach of the residents.
During the immediate past administration of now Senator Jonah Jang in the State, plateau was among the states that benefited from an Eight billion naira European Union water assisted project yet portable water is still a scarce commodity across the state.
Moving the motion on the floor of the house, member representing Jos North – North Constituency, Hon Ibrahim Baba Hassan says the hardship the people are going through in search of portable water is too much especially considering the hug resources pumped into the sector by the previous administration.
