Some Non-Governmental Organisations linked with the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, have drilled about 236 boreholes in rural communities across the 21 local government areas of Kebbi State.
The NGOs include Kadi Malami Foundation, Khadimiiya Initiative for Justice and Development, Aisha Abubakar Malami Centre for Women Development and Al-Iman Charity Foundation.
A statement signed on Sunday by Mr Malami’s Special Assistant on Media and Public Relations, Dr Umar Jibrilu-Gwandu, said that the minister inaugurated one of the boreholes constructed for Internally Displaced Persons, IDPs, camped in Ambursa.
Mr Jibrilu-Gwandu added that Malami pledged to provide more social amenities to rural communities in the state through collaboration with relevant stakeholders.
In his address, the District Head of Ambursa, Isah Haruna-Rasheed thanked the minister and the NGOs for the intervention.
He noted that the provision of the borehole would end the acute water scarcity in the IDP camp.
