Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that the minister of water resources, Suleiman Adamu described Jigawa state as the dirtiest in the northwest and called on the governor to declare a state of emergency.
The minister made this assertion on Tuesday, October 8, when he visited Governor Muhammed Badaru Abubakar.
Adamu said even though he was from Jigawa, he would not hesitate to say the truth about the situation in the state.
The minister said Jigawa is one of the dirtiest in the country and urged the governor to take action as the state sanitation indices stands only at 6.7 percent.
Adamu, however, commended Jigawa state for achieving 86.8 percent provision of portable drinking water to the citizens of the state and that it also surpassed the 69 percent average of Sustainable Development Goals (SDG).
He said: “Even though I come from Jigawa, we have to tell ourselves the truth that Jigawa state has failed woefully in terms of sanitation and hygiene. That is why it is the worst in the entire north-west region and one of the worst in the country.
The governor in his reaction acknowledged the problem in the state and described it as a challenge he was ready to confront.
