The Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai, has commissioned the 150 Million litres per day Zaria water treatment plant, aimed at addressing the perennial water scarcity in Zaria and environs which date back more than 40 years ago.

Speaking at the ceremony, El-Rufai said the Zaria water project is the beginning of a new phase in water works development and renovation in the state, as other water works scattered all across the state will continue to receive the attention of government.

During his election Campaign in 2015, Governor El-Rufai promised to address the problem of water scarcity in Zaria if elected into office and after two years in office, that promise has been realised with the completion of the 150 million litres per day water treatment plant.

The Zaria water project was initiated in 2008 by the Namadi Sambo administration at the cost of N15 billion, it was later reviewed by the El-Rufai administration to N24 billion due to expansion in design and other exigencies.

Beyond the broader goal of ensuring availability of water for domestic and industrial purposes for residents of Zaria and environs, the Kaduna state government is hoping that the completion of the Water Project will boost agriculture in eight Local Government Areas through irrigation farming.
