As part of efforts to surmount shortage of water in the state, the Gombe state government has approved the sum of N11.8 billion to build new booster stations in areas facing water scarcity.

The state commissioner of water resources Mijinyawa Yahya made this known Wednesday while briefing journalists on the decision taken at the state executive council.

He explained that the water booster stations will be built at Tumfure, Gombe capital development zone and international conference centre areas of the state capital.

Mijinyawa added that about 160 kilometers water pipes will also be provided in the state capital under the project.

According to him, meters will also be provided to the people so that they will be charged bills according to their consumption to avoid estimated billings.
