Gombe State Government Works to Restore Water Supply After Windstorm

Zakari Haruna - Kaduna 

The Gombe State Government has taken swift action to address the disruption in water supply to Gombe Metropolis and environs, following a windstorm that caused electrical faults at the Dadinkowa treatment plant.

Governor Muhammadu Inuwa Yahaya, accompanied by top officials, visited the treatment plant today to assess the progress of the emergency repair work. The technical team has replaced all 31 broken electric poles, fixed power cables, and restored electricity supply to the plant, enabling the production of millions of liters of water since Wednesday.

Although a temporary glitch halted the process, the Commissioner of Water Resources, Mohammed Saidu Mohammed Fawu, confirmed that everything is now in place, and water is being transported to the lower and upper zones in Gombe for distribution to the public.

The Acting Governor, Dr. Aminu Umar Yuguda, emphasized the need for stop-gap measures and reiterated the Governor's directive to expedite the completion of the Malam Inna and Wuro Juli water projects to prevent similar disruptions in the future.

The Director-General of Press Affairs, Ismaila Uba Misilli, commended the combined team led by Commissioner Fawu for their tireless efforts and thanked the people of Gombe for their understanding, solidarity, and generosity during the period.

With the water supply expected to be fully restored soon, the government's prompt response has alleviated the suffering of the people and demonstrated its commitment to addressing the challenges faced by the state.
