Katsina Gov’t To Demolish Houses Erected On Water Pipelines 

Katsina State Government has projected to spend N25b and have spent over N18b investments on rehabilitation, renovations, constructions of Dams and water treatment plants, expansion into new lay-outs and purchase of quality machines from foreign land.

The government is also considering demolition of houses and structures built on water pipelines to make room for the expected surge in water supply and to also compliment the newly commissioned water projects in the State.

Commissioner for Water Resources, Alhaji Musa Funtua stated this during an interview in his office, Katsina.

According to him, water projects are capital intensive and costly.

“Water supply has enjoyed the highest attention from the Aminu Bello Masari’s administration. Now fixing these challenges and services, we give you water, and you must show your commitment and patronage, definitely when we finish there must be payment of form of tax or water rates if approved by the Assembly”.

He said government will rally round stakeholders and reach out to the House of Assembly to work out modality on how the projects would be sustained through paying of taxes by the consumers in order boost the economic of the State.

The Water Resources Commissioner further said government may be forced to give way to encourage water distribution, noting that by the time the projects are commissioned, people will start reacting to the supply surge.

Alhaji Funtua then described the water supply situation in the state as efficient, hence it is expected to remain stable with the coming of Ajiwa and Zobe water treatment plants on stream.

“Zobe carrying capacity was originally fixed at 100 m gallons per day, but currently 30 m gallons and when fully commissioned it is expected to rise to 70 m gallons per day.

“Go across the state, you will notice ongoing works in the water sector rehabilitation, interconnection, renovation expansion of water works, and so on”, he added.
