The Governor of Enugu State Peter Mbah has reiterated his administration’s commitment to end water scarcity in the Enugu metropolis and other towns in the state, expressing the hope that the steady availability of water would end the construction of water storage towers in homes in the state.

The governor gave the assurance yesterday while receiving in audience a civil society organization, Network of Water Rights Initiative NEWARI during a courtesy call at the Government House, Enugu.

Mbah said there was no reason why in the 21st century, the people and residents of the state should not turn on their taps and get clean water, affirming that water would start running in Enugu homes in the next 154 days.

He commended the organization for its interest in sanitation and hygiene, saying that with the provision of water to schools, hospitals, and markets, they will have toilet facilities, thereby helping to end open defecation in the state.

The board chairman of the organization Temple Oraeki in his earlier statement said that the aim of Newari commonly known as Wash Rights Network is to improve access to quality water, sanitation, and hygiene services in South East through the instrumentality of evidence-based advocacy, effective monitoring, and accountability mechanism.
