The minister of Water Resources, Engr Suleiman Adamu, has disclosed that his ministry has completed no fewer than 17 abandoned water supply, dam and irrigation projects across the 36 states of the country.

Adamu said this while briefing journalists on Thursday in Abuja on his achievements since assuming office three years ago.

While enumerating his achievements in office, the minister noted that the ministry is now “deploying most of our resources towards completing and commissioning all high and medium priority projects within the stipulated time.”

He also explained that the National Water Resources Bill, which is still awaiting approval, once signed off by the National Assembly, will make room for more participation in water supply delivery through irrigation operation and maintenance in the country.

Adamu, however, assured the general public that the ministry, as a custodian of the most important national resource, will ensure that the resources are protected, used, developed, conserved, managed and controlled, for the collective benefit of the people.
