The Federal Government has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Katsina State Government for the completion of Zobe Regional Water Supply Project which was abandoned many years ago.
Signing the MoU on behalf of the Federal Government, the Minister of Water Resources, Engr. Suleiman H. Adamu, said that Federal Government would commit a total sum of 12.5 billion naira into the completion of the project while Katsina State Government would contribute about 3billion naira.
