To effectively track the drilling and installation of the solar-powered borehole in GSS Nangere, Yobe state, we sent a Freedom of Information request to Yobe State RUWASSA to get project details.
Yobe state Rural Water Supply and Sanitation Agency (RUWASSA) responded to our FOI asking us to redirect our query to AFDB-RWSSP state implementing unit.
On the 7th of February 2020, Our monitoring team visited the project site and there was just a point that showed that the project has commenced, according to a staff of the school that pleaded anonymity, he said that the contractor just came and drilled it and left it for over 3 weeks without visiting the site again.
We have activated #WaterGSSNangere, a campaign to track the implementation of this project to ensure its completion in accordance with the timeline and bills of quantity as stated in the contract document.
On the 11th June 2021, Our yobe state team went for a follow-up visit to monitor the project, on reaching there he was received by the principal, Abdullahi Sule, which gave him a tour of the school and the completed borehole facility, he said he was excited that the funds for this project were not diverted to private pocket, now there is sufficient water for the school and students are able to stay in school.
