LASG HAS NOT PRIVATISED WATER SUPPLY, Assures best practices in water sector

The Lagos State Government has said that it has not privatized water supply, neither has it awarded water privatization contract to any organisation, saying that the Public Private Partnership (PPP) model that it was initiating in the water sector was still at bidding stage.

This was made known on Thursday in Ijora by Engr. Muminu Badmus, Managing Director, Lagos Water Corporation while reacting to reports in some section of the media.

Engr. Badmus debunked reports by some online media that the state government had awarded water privatization contract to a discredited company as false, stressing that such insinuations were at best preemptive as government had only shortlisted a number of reputable companies, none of which was yet to have the contract.

He explained that the Lagos Water Corporation had publicly advertised an Expression of Interest (EOI) which attracted seven local and international firms, out of which four firms were shortlisted following a rigorous and transparent process.

He assured Lagosians that the Lagos State Government would continue to work in their interest in the bid to promote their wellbeing, adding that this was the main reason why the Akinwunmi Ambode Administration had prioritised provision of potable water to the people by investing in water facilities as evidenced by the increase of water supply to 220Million Gallons per Day (MGD) to rapidly bridge supply gap.

Engr. Badmus stated that the exponential increase in population has continued to push the water supply need of Lagos State to 570MGD, leaving a gap of over 300MGD, while for the same demographic reason, the state’s resources faced pressure from other critical areas.

“ Globally, attention is being shifted to the PPP arrangement to provide infrastructure for the people as government can no longer shoulder the responsibility alone” he said.

He said that what the government was working towards was ultimately a PPP arrangement and not outright withdrawal, adding that government was midwifing an arrangement that would ensure the injection of both public and private funds and expertise to drive seamless provision of potable water to the teeming population of Lagosians.

He assured Lagosians that, as the ultimately beneficiaries, they would have cause to rejoice at the outcome of the ongoing process which not only promise to evolve an effective and enduring solution to the water supply needs of Lagosians, but also bring about a model for the country and the entire West Africa sub-region.

NIWASA HONOURS GOV. AMBODE, BAGS GRAND “WATERMAN” OF THE YEAR AWARD

Nigeria Water Supply Association (NWSA) has honoured the Lagos State Governor,  His Excellency, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode, as he bagged a Grand Waterman of the Year Award at the 1st International Conference/Exhibition and 4th Annual General Meeting/Election, organised by Nigeria Water Supply Association (NIWASA) at the Sheraton hotel, Abuja, Nigeria, recently.

Engr. Muminu thanked the Conference organiser for bestowing such  huge Award to Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode, stated that the Lagos State Government has placed much priority on water sector and is highly committed to ensuring that water gets to everyone in the State.
“That is why the present administration under the leadership of His Excellency, Mr.  Akinwunmi Ambode has continued to invest heavily in Water facilities, as evidenced in the improvements in water supply in the State
“ Noting that due to the State increased investment, the hardship which many residents suffer in getting potable water in their homes has reduced drastically”.
He however, added that  the Corporation is working closely towards launching it’s Strategic Business Plan to guide the Corporation to year 2023.
Recently, the Corporation added 10MGD to Water Production and Supply as a result of massive rehabilitation exercise embarked upon by the State Government, this included the 3 Major Waterworks of Iju,  Adiyan and Ishasi, Akute Intakes and 48Mini Waterworks across the State.
Presently,  the State has embarked on Adiyan phase II of 70MGD to supply western axis of the State, Proposed Igbo-Nla Phase I 100 MGD water scheme was expected to boost water supply to Victoria Island, down to the Lekki corridor.

Other projects, which were still in the pipeline for execution through the PPP arrangement, included Yewa I, Ishasi Expansion, Igbo Nla II, Adiyan III, Yewa II, Ibeshe I and Ibeshe II projects, among others, he concluded.
