Katsina House of Assembly summons commissioner of water resources, others over water scarcity
The Katsina State House of Assembly has summoned the state Commissioner for Water Resources and Managing Director of State Rural Water Supply and Sanitation Agency (RUWASSA) over water scarcity across the state.
Their invitation by the House followed the resolution on a motion of urgent public importance sponsored by Honourable Hambali Faruk, member representing Katsina constituency over the acute water shortage in the state.
However, the two public officers are expected to appear before the state House and brief the members over the persistent water scarcity for several weeks, on Monday 20th, May, 2019.
The member representing Katsina constituency expressed worry over it, despite the huge financial attention that the state government is paying to the Ajiwa water treatment plant.
Katsina state is presently facing water shortages in every nook and crannies across all the local governments within the state.
