The Federal Government has since 2016 allocated a whopping N395.23 billion to the Ministry of Water Resources for capital projects for the purpose of ending the challenge of water scarcity in many parts of the country. But in spite of the humungous capital investment, the citizens are still plagued by acute water scarcity.
In 2016, the ministry got N53.3 billion while in 2017, it received an allocation of N54.02 billion. The ministry in 2018, 2019 and 2020 got allocations of N95.11 billion, N92.2 billion and N100.6 billion respectively but nothing concrete is seen to have come out of the allocations which have been on the rise annually. These exclude the massive budgetary allocations to the sector by previous administrations.
The failure of the huge budgetary allocations to translate to availability of water for the citizens is worrisome for many and puts a question mark on the ability of the government to control water resources in the country.
