A committee has been formed by Taraba State Governor Agbu Kefas to examine the activities of the Taraba State Water Supply and Sewerage Corporation (TAWASCO).
The action is intended to evaluate and improve the state’s water supply services.
The Attorney General and Commissioner of Justice Barrister of the state, Yakubu Maikasuwa, will chair the committee, according to a statement made available to journalists in Jalingo, the state capital, on Thursday.
The committee, which is made up of important state figures like Julius Peter, Commissioner of Rural & Urban Development, and Naomi Tanko Agbu, Commissioner of Energy & Economic Development, is in charge of assessing TAWASCO’s ability to supply water to Jalingo and the surrounding areas.
Other members of the committee include Mr. Daniel Ishaku, Commissioner of Water Management and Aquatic Resources, Dr. Sarah Enoch Adi, Commissioner of Finance and Economic Planning, and Mrs. Patricia R. Dann, Permanent Secretary, Career Management.
The committee’s responsibilities include evaluating the agency’s ability to sustain itself, analyzing its revenue stream, and making recommendations regarding full or partial commercialization.
The committee is also required to make recommendations for how to guarantee the smooth supply of drinkable water in the state capital and its surroundings.
The government’s commitment to addressing Taraba State’s water supply challenges is reflected in the committee’s two-week deadline for submitting its thorough report.
