GOVERNORS CALL FOR REVIEW OF WATER RESOURCES.

Thirty six State Governors in Nigeria have called for the review of the reintroduced National Water Resources Bill.

The resolution was rechead at the Teleconference Meeting of the Nigeria Governors Forum, NGF, held recently.

NGF Chairman and Ekiti State governor, Kayode Fayemi, in a circular issued yesterday, said the bill should be reviewed to accommodate the concerns of all States.

The Governors argued that the Bill did not adequately address the interests of the States and is inconsistent with the provisions of the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

They also unanimously agreed to spearhead the livestock productivity and resilience support project. The project is sponsored by the World Bank and aimed at improving the productivity, commercialization and resilience of targeted livestock production systems in Nigeria.
