Nearly 4,000 people depend on two boreholes, Jigawa community laments

The residents of Kazura community in Birniwa Local Government Area of Jigawa State on Thursday decried the acute water scarcity they experience and appealed to the state government to come to their rescue.

One of the residents, Alhaji Wali Kazura, an aide to Alhaji Suleiman Idris, the Kazura Village Head, told the News Agency of Nigeria in Birniwa that the community required urgent intervention to boost its water supply.

“It is imperative for the state and local governments to drill more hand-pump boreholes because the two functional boreholes in this community cannot meet the water demand of the residents.

“Only two of the three boreholes we have in the whole of Kazura are functional, meanwhile, this is a community of nearly 4,000 people.

“We abandoned the third one at Anguwan-Kudu area 10 years ago because the water smells of kerosene and as a result of this problem and dry season, the community is facing water scarcity.

“The situation is pathetic and it has brought untold hardship upon our people,” he said while speaking on behalf of the community.

Kazura said the scarcity had forced people to trek miles to nearby villages in search of clean water.
