News - by RadioNow / Feb. 11th, 2022

Minister of water resources, Suleiman Adamu says efforts are ongoing to ensure that the water resources bill is passed in 2022.

Adamu spoke on Thursday while featuring on ‘Good Morning Nigeria’, a Nigerian Television Authority (NTA) programme.

In 2020, Nigerians had expressed reservations over the bill on the grounds that certain provisions of the proposed legislation will give the federal government undue control over water resources.

In August 2021, the minister had said the controversy generated over the bill was caused by “deliberate misinformation”.

Speaking on the latest development regarding the bill, Adamu said the proposed law is important to solve the problems of water supply across the country.
