The Federal Capital Territory, FCT and its satellite towns , has been hit by a massive shortage of water causing residents to lament as they wait endlessly for water board to restore water.
TheNewsGuru.com, (TNG) reports the incident has led to untold hardship as residents have to pay as much as N250 per Jerry can of water.
In a statement issued by the Water Board on Wednesday, the board made a passionate appeal to residents to bear with management pending when repairs must have been effected at the Usama Dam.
Residents in Kubwa and adjoining satellite towns of Bwari, Dede, Dutse, Kaigini and other towns had to queue to buy water or patronise hawkers popularly known as ‘mairuwa’ to get water.
The water shortage started last week Thursday when taps suddenly dried up.
