According to her, “the project is to improve the living conditions of up to about 1.5 million people in the greater area of Kano, including access to quality water and to improve the financial viability of the water board by increasing its revenue and enhancing its governance framework."
Ahmed said the project “is to rehabilitate and build the infrastructure needed to increase access to water services to populations in greater Kano and to help improve key sector reforms for the sustainability of the project.”
The project will be implemented by the Kano state ministry of water resources through a state project management committee.
Meanwhile, President Muhammadu Buhari says the Federal Government is doing its best to correct and reverse the terrible mismanagement the country had experienced, “and with some luck, our best will be good enough.”
The president stated this when he received a delegation of non-career ambassadors, who came to the State House, Abuja, to congratulate him on his re-election.
He said Nigeria was trying to live within her means, “so we can improve our lot,” adding that government was determined to upgrade the country’s profile, both locally and internationally.
President Buhari said it would be inexcusable for government not to take care of its Ambassadors in their various stations, hence the special attention being paid to the country’s foreign missions
