Some residents of six local government areas of Doma, Keana, Obi, Awe, Lafia and Nassarawa-Eggon in Nasarawa State have commended the state water board for restoring water supply to the area, after two months of shortage caused by technical problems.

Esther Namo, a resident of Lafia pointed out that two months without water supply saw the water vendors capitalising on the problem and hiking their prices. “We had no option but to patronise them,” she remarked. Namo thanked the government for the efforts made to restore water to the affected areas.

Another resident, Malam Adamu Usman who said he was forced to disconnect from the state water supply and connect to borehole emphasised that government needs to accord priority to the issue of water supply because it is a basic necessity, while praying that the current supply will be sustained.
