Emir Appeals to Bauchi Govt to Make Potable Water Available

By Segun Awofadeji in Bauchi 
The Emir of Bauchi, Alhaji Rilwanu Suleiman Adamu, has appealed to the state government to look into the acute water scarcity bedevilling residents of Bauchi metropolis with a view to making it readily available for domestic purposes.
Adamu, who was speaking Tuesday when he paid homage to Bauchi Government House tagged ‘Hawan Daushe’ as part of the Eid-el fitr celebrations, noted that the acute water shortage had defied successive administrations in the state.
He also called on the state government to intimate the federal government on the need for a new prison yard in Bauchi to replace the decades’ old, outdated and congested one located in the heart of the township.
The emir explained that his emirate council has for some years now been pleading with the relevant federal authorities for a new prison in Bauchi in conformity with the modern trend.
Emir Adamu also complained about the high fare of this year’s hajj to Saudi Arabia, as he similarly want the state government to reduce the cost of fertiliser which it pegged at N5,500 per bag to enable peasant farmers boost food production.
