An environment pactNigeria
A water Charter that will ensure effective and efficient utilisation of water resources in the Hadejah-Jam’are/Komadugu-Yobe River Basins (HJKY), without creating environmental and ecological degradation from the proposed Kafin-Zaki dam project, has been signed by the Borno State Government in the spirit of regional collaboration with the six riparian states in the North-East sub-region.
Signing the water charter last week at a round-table session in Maiduguri on the HJKYB basin as it affects Borno and Yobe states, Muhammed Imam, Borno’s Water Resources Commissioner said the signing of the document had brought an end to the controversy surrounding the construction of the proposed dam project by the Bauchi State Government.
He said the state government took the action in signing the water charter because of its belief that “integrated water resources management option” was the most appropriate solution to addressing the fears and concerns of people living in the four river basin areas over the proposed dam project.
Imam, who was represented by the Permanent Secretary in the ministry, Kois E. Muhammed, said that the only way the six riparian states could effectively utilise the water resources in the basins was through regular consultations and negotiations among them. The affected states also include Kano, Jigawa and Plateau.
