| September 2, 2013 More

Bauchi State Government may likely lose out on the World Bank fifty million dollars ($50,000,000.00) and the Federal Government’s (FG) One Hundred Million Dollars ($100,000,000.00) intervention in the Urban Water Supply and Sanitation sector, if the new water law is not passed by the state.

The team leader of USAID funded project in Bauchi, Sustainable Water and Sanitation in Africa (SUWASA), Engineer Hossana John Dajan stated this in a workshop organized by SUWASA in Abuja yesterday.

The team leader who applauded Bauchi State Government for coming first at the just concluded third National Urban Water Sector Reform Project accreditation exercise conducted by the World bank, however said that, even though the state came first in the accreditation exercise, the water law bill is the most important requirement that can guarantee the intervention from both World Bank and the FG.
