Nasarawa state Governor Abdullahi Sule has imposed a  state of emergency on water supply in the state.

Sule made this known while  inaugurating the committee set up by the state government  on water supply in Lafia.

He said  providing  potable  water  was  one of  the  priorities of his administration.

Sule said,  “During my campaign and in my inaugural speech, I promised to make water available to the people of Nasarawa State. Our people face untold hardship in search of water and we want an uninterrupted water supply.”

The governor  said  he had discussed  the way forward with  ministries, departments and agencies after he was sworn in.

The Chairman of committee,  Abdulkarim  Kana, a former Commissioner of Water Resources, said, “It’s time  for  action, no more time for talking and this team wants to put the state on the right path, as water is fundamental to human survival.”

Members of the committee are Idris Mohammed, Sani Salihu, Yakubu Adam,  Simon Ibi,  Umar  Ago and  Ezekiel Audu. The  committee has two months to submit its report.
