Multisectoral Crisis Recovery Project (MCRP): Safe Drinking Water Restored to Adamawa by North East Development Commission(NEDC)

Following the insurgency of Boko Haram attack a few years back in Nigeria, a Multisectoral Crisis Recovery Project (MCRP) was launched by the Federal Government of Nigeria with the support of the World Bank. The objective was to rebuild the states devastated by Boko Haram.

Ahmadu Fintiri, Governor of Adamawa State speaking said: “The intervention of the Federal Government will help restore trust, peace, and normalcy in the areas affected by the unfortunate crisis.”

Adamawa state had a bitter share of grievous experiences from the attack of recent years. Part of which was great damage to their drinking water facilities.

Recently, the North East Development Commission(NEDC) launched the rehabilitation of safe drinking water facilities alongside sanitation facilities in the state which is part of the MCRP. NEDC is a commission created by the Nigerian federal government to facilitate rapid, equitable and sustainable development in the northeastern states of Jigawa, Adamawa, Kaduna, Kano, Katsina, Kebbi, Sokoto and Zamfara.

This development is going to span through eight cities in Adamawa State. These are Garkida, Gombi, Hong, Pella, Uba, Maiha, Michika, and Gulak. Each of these cities has a drinking water supply system.

Six companies handle the projects across the cities as follows: Emnamu Global Enterprises Nigeria will rehabilitate and upgrade drinking water facilities in Hong City. China Zhonghao’s Nigerian subsidiary will rehabilitate the drinking water systems in Gombi and Garkida. Fieldrill and City International Dimensions Construction will rehabilitate and improve the drinking water systems in Michika and Uba, while Hill water Resources and Bellsworth Resources will rehabilitate the Maiha, Gulak, and Pella drinking water systems.

President of the NEDC, Paul Tarfa, estimated that the soon-to-be renovated drinking water supply facilities will serve 650,000 people in Adamawa State.

Special applause to the Nigerian federal government who recently validated a $6.2 million loan from the US government. These funds are intended for the MCRP in Adamawa State.
