A non governmental organisation (NGO), in partnership with Future Assured, a pet project of the Wife of the President, Hajiya Aisha Buhari, yesterday boosted water supply to communities in Nasarawa State with the commissioning of  boreholes in Saint Gabriel Catholic Church, Nyanya Gwandara, Karu LGA.

Speaking at the inauguration of the water scheme, executive director, Khadidja Brahim foundation,   Hajiya Khadidja Brahim said the foundation is challenged to embark on the water scheme in response to the water shortage in most communities in Nigeria which she said informed the provision of the water project in the area.

According to Brahim, the foundation has in partnership with future Assured provided 28 bore holes to communities in Nasarawa, Niger, Kaduna and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).

Hajiya Brahim noted that arrangements were on to commence the execution of more projects across the country adding that the provision of portable water in rural areas was key to the reduction of diseases prevelance in most parts of the country.

“Khadidja Brahim foundation has concluded plans to expand its water scheme to more states of the federation. All that is needed in terms of planning were being put together by the team engaged by the foundation.

“The projects which are executed with assistance from donor agencies, spirited individuals would be spread to major communities across the states of the federation.”

The executive director who admonished benefiting communities to secure, as well as ensuring regular maintenance of the projects,  commended the benefiting community for providing enabling environment for the establishment of the project in the area.
