The federal ministry of Water Resources, through the Hadejia Jama’are River Basin Development Authority (HJRBDA), has resumed the construction work of Tafga Dam, located at Doguwa town, Doguwa local government in Kano state.

Explaining the project on Wednesday at the dam site, HJRBDA’s Acting Executive Director of Engineering, Malam Muhammad Mustapha Umar, said the dam was a road embankment type which serves dual purposes of storing water as well as linking communities across a riverine area.

He said the dam will be used as a source of water supply to its neigbouring communities as well as for irrigation, fishing and livestock rearing.

He said the project began in 2017, but was halted due to lack of funds.

“However, with the intervention of Hon. Alhassan Ado Doguwa, the member representing Tudunwada/Doguwa federal constituency, the federal government has injected more funds for the continuation of the project.”

Also speaking, the Managing Director of the construction firm handling the project, Rhozeta Nig. Ltd, Engr. Obianime Ini, said the project will be completed before the end of the year 2020 and has a minimum active period of 50 years.

On his part, Hon. Alhassan Ado Doguwa explained that the project had three components which include: the dam, access road across the dam, and the irrigation aspect.

“With regard to the irrigation, 100 farmers were sampled among the neigbouring communities and a tube well will be constructed on their farms and a pumping machine will be given to each of them,” he explained.

He also flagged-off the distribution of the pumping machines to the beneficiaries, promising that the dam project will be timely completed.
