January 31 11:56 2020

The former Minister of Youth and Sports Barrister Solomon Dalung has brokered a Federal government intervention to provide potable water for Langtang South Local Government Area of Plateau State .

This followed a response to the passionate appeal of Barrister Dalung asking the federal government to intervene in the plight of Langtang people.

The letter from the Federal Ministry of Water Resources headlined ‘Construction of Water Supply Project in Sabon Gida Langtang South LGA’ stated;

“Federal Government will take an unprecedented step towards providing a lasting solution to the water crisis in the area which has been neglected by successive Administrations in the country”.

The Water Resources Ministry informed Dalung that a contractor had been secured to construct potable water supply schemes in Sabon Gida and sought the former Minister’s cooperation for the successful execution of the project.

Barrister Dalung expressed happiness at the quick response of federal government to the provision of portable for his people.

“Water is life. President Muhammadu Buhari has given my people a new lease of life with this intervention. No longer will they have to trek for kilometres and draw water from the same dirty water holes with both wild and domestic animals.

“For many years since the creation of the Local Government, we have been crying for help to address our water needs without any response. President Buhari has wiped our tears and the only tears we now have are tears of joy,” Dalung

In addition to seeking Federal Government’s Intervention, Dalung had personally initiated the construction of an earth dam in the area last year to alleviate the suffering of his people.

This will be the third major Federal Government Project under President Buhari to be sited in Langtang South, arguably one of the least developed LGAs in the country.

A Modern Mini Stadium in Mabudi, the Local Government Headquarters also has a project that is almost completed as well as an Ecological project for the construction of drainages and road networks in Sabon Gida which has reached 50% rate of completion.
