No Going Back On Water Resources Bill, FG Clears The Air

The Federal Government has declared it will go ahead with the Water Resources Bill.

Minister of Information and Culture Lai Mohammed told reporters the bill was not designed to cause water wars in the country.

He said the bill is a panacea to likely water conflicts in the country, adding that critics of the bill have either not read it or might be mischievous.

The minister said there is no hidden agenda behind the bill and it is not a subterfuge reintroduction of RUGA.

Mohammed made the clarifications at a joint briefing with the Minister of Water Resources, Engr. Suleiman Adamu in Abuja.
