• The Federal Ministry of Water Resources has entered into partnership with six universities in the country in order to reposition the water sector for effective service delivery.

    The universities, which were chosen from different geopolitical zones in the country, are Federal University of Agriculture Abeokuta for South-west; Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria for North-west; University of Ilorin for North-central; University of Calabar for South-south; Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka, for South-east and University of Maiduguri, for North-east.

    The partnership, it was revealed, would lead to the establishment of capacity building centres through academic programmes up to Master’s degree level on Integrated Water Resources Management, in addition to other capacity building courses offered by the participating Universities.

    The project, which is being implemented by the National Water Resource Institute (NWRI), would foster the creation of water-related jobs such as irrigation, aquaculture, hydropower/dam, water supply and sanitation that would enhance expertise in water management in the country.

    The programme’s capacity building network would be to develop courses for the water board and to raise human capacity manpower to solve any problem in the water sector.
