The people of ENUGU STATE are crying out loud to the governor to remedy the recent upsurge of scarcity of water all over the state.
This situation is becoming so worrisome to the residents of the state who now buy a gallon of water for one N100 hundred naira.
This has also escalated round the state making the entire scenerio look dull.
9News Nigeria correspondent has it that the ministry of water resources in the state has not shown any serious effort to cushion this amenity as the crowds of people have continued to increase in the queue for water supply at various points.
Though the problem of water has been for decades maybe because of the topography of the state. It takes alot of resources to pump water from nearby areas to the city.
When our news crew went round the city we found out that some of the source of water wells are dirty and the drops of water coming out from the wells is not enough to serve the number of people in search of water.
Information revealed to our news crew was that during the time of former governor Sullivan Chime, there was pipe borne facilities in the state where residents could fetch water but governor UGWUANYI came and ignored the water supply in the state, our source revealed.
Meanwhile, a call on the Special Assistance to the governor on water resources, Hon. Anthony Onyia has assured the residents of the state that the issue of scarcity and inadequate supply of water will soon be a by- goon.
The governor however assured ENUGU residents of prompt attention to provide water all over the state.
