Alhaji Goni Fika, Chairman, Critical Stakeholders’ Forum, Fika LGA of Yobe, has commended the Federal Government and Senator Ibrahim Bomoi of Yobe South, for reviving the abandoned Fika-Gadaka Water Supply Project.

The Minister of Water Resources, Alhaji Suleiman Adamu had announced on Feb. 17 that the Federal Executive Council (FEC) had approved a review of the contract for the project.

The project was abandoned in 2007 at 30 per cent completion level.

Fika told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Monday in Damaturu that the recent resumption of work on the site could not have happened without intense lobbying by the senator.

“You will hardly be proved wrong, if you loudly shout to say Fika is probably the only local government area in Yobe without potable water.

“This predicament is suffered by all the inhabitants along Fika and Gadaka, who our senator will now save from drinking muddy water, drawn from Fika shallow seasonal streams.
