The federal government has announced the provision of a state-of-the-art water laboratory in Kano State aimed at ensuring accurate and reliable assessment of water quality in the state.

Mrs Elizabeth Ugoh, the Director of Water Quality Control and Sanitation at the Federal Ministry of Water Resources and Sanitation, disclosed this during a one-day state event on the WASH Systems for Health (WS4H) programme.

Represented by Amina Musa, the Chief Scientific Officer, Mrs Ugoh emphasised the significance of Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) in promoting human health and dignity.

She highlighted the challenges faced by many communities in accessing clean water, adequate sanitation and proper hygiene practices, impacting their health, economic stability and overall quality of life.

Mrs Ugoh stated, “Our aim is to address these challenges by working together with local communities, governments, non-governmental agencies and international partners. We aim to build resilient WASH systems that are sustainable, inclusive and capable of meeting the needs of all individuals, particularly the vulnerable.”

She stressed the importance of water quality testing in identifying contaminants, ensuring compliance, monitoring systems and protecting public health.

She noted that the newly established water quality laboratory in Kano was equipped with advanced technology and staffed with skilled professionals dedicated to providing accurate and reliable water quality assessments.

Earlier, John Wali, the programme manager, underscored the strategic alliance between Self Help Africa, the Ministry of Water Resources and Sanitation and other relevant institutions to implement the transformative WS4H initiative.
