Kano residence continue to chant words of applauds to their own, Alhaji Abdulsalam Abdulkareem Zaura popularly known as A. A. Zaura, for his bid to ensure Kano State has enough potable and hygienic water supply, as he embarks on total repairs of over 1000 solar-based boreholes, and building of over 500 new ones across the 44 Local Government Areas of Kano State.
This is contained in a statement issued by his media director, Al-Amin Ciroma, saying Mr. Zaura is concerned by the rate at which most of the boreholes in Kano State remain comatose when people yearn for the supply. Such an issue could have been minimized, according to the statement, if there were good and sound workable water schemes in the state.
“I am appalled at the rate at which most boreholes remain not in use in most centers in the state. So, there is a need for them to be repaired and restored accordingly so that people can access quality and potable water supply. This can complement the state government’s effort in ensuring a smooth process.
“We must commend determinations of His Excellency, Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje for his tireless hard work towards ensuring all sectors are truly restored according to their priorities in Kano State.
We are determined to ensure we repair over 1000, and build new boreholes across all the 44 local government areas in our dear state. This becomes necessary, as we found out that some communities lack portable water supply, which may result to breading new disease that can affect our people,” he said.
Already, most boreholes in target centers were restored, with engineers working out modalities on their continuous services to people. The project was kicked off from Mr. Zaura’s constituency – Ungogo local government area.
So far, and at the time of filing this statement, over seven centers have already continued to enjoy the smooth supply of potable water through the borehole. A lot of residents express their profound gratitude to Alhaji Abdulsalam Abdulkareem Zaura for his magnanimity, generosity, and benevolence. And hoped that he can continue doing the right thing for his people.
