Thirty two Million Nigerians sufficiently have access to Pipe Borne Water.
That’s according to Nigeria’s Minister of Water Resources, Suleiman Adamu .
The Minister disclosed this at the 7th Edition, of the President Muhammadu Buhari Scorecard Media Series in Abuja.
It is the turn of the Minister of Water Resources to present the Scorecard for his ministry and achievements made so far under the leadership of President Muhammadu Buhari in the last 8 years.
Among its many achievements, the Minister says his Ministry has been able to grant 32 million Nigerians access to clean and sufficient pipe borne water .
And while acknowledging there are more Nigerians yet to be reached , he insists this is still work in Progress.
Nigeria’s Information Minister, Lai Mohammed also takes a swipe at the main party opposition, the People’s Democratic Party for downplaying the achievements of the Buhari Administration.
He says the Buhari Administration has achieved so much in the last 7years compared to the 16years of leadership under the Administration of the PDP.
But the minister said the one-time vice president has lost touch with events in the country having relocated to Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE)
According to Mohammed, when Atiku was in office for eight years, there was no motorable road to his hometown, adding that the Mayo Belwa- Jada- Ganye- Toungo Road has been constructed by the Buhari administration.
Besides, the minister said the Buhari government has curtailed Boko Haram insurgency in Adamawa State.
Speaking at the seventh edition of the PMB administration, Mohammed said: “Let me use this opportunity to comment on the increasing tendency by some opposition presidential candidates to downplay the achievements of this administration, in their desperation for power, ahead of the 2023 elections.
“The worst offender in this regard has been the presidential candidate of the PDP, former vice president Atiku Abubakar.
“During his recent campaign in Akure, the former VP was quoted as saying the APC had not done anything for Nigeria in eight years. What a preposterous statement from somebody who should know.
“I guess we can excuse His Excellency the former Vice President who, until recently, had fully relocated to Dubai, thus losing touch with Nigeria.
