Plateau, Gombe understudy Lagos water system

The Commissioners for Water Resources and Energy from Plateau State, Sa’ad Bello, and Gombe State, Shehu Madugu, have commended the efforts of Lagos State Water Regulatory Commission to regulate and supply water devoid of water-borne diseases.

According to a statement on Wednesday, the commissioners disclosed this during their visit to LASWARCO in Alausa Ikeja, adding that the success recorded necessitated their understudy of the procedures of the commission’s activities.

Bello said, “This visit was informed by the need for us to bring best practices into water regulation, management, and distribution in our respective states by taking a clue from how LASWARCO fared since its inception and I commend the intermediary role being played by the commission in ensuring that Lagos residents consume safe water, devoid of water-borne related diseases.”

Madugu stated that Gombe State is proud of Lagos’ achievements in water regulation and appealed for more support and institutional assistance from LASWARCO.

The Executive Secretary of LASWARCO, Mrs Funke Adepoju, disclosed that the commission is open to new initiatives.

“Recently, the state government built a state-of-the-art water check laboratory to ensure that those into the business of water have a place to test it and Lagos is also open to new initiatives that will improve the water sector,” she said.
