She further commended the effort of the state RUWASA and SUBEB for all the technical support during the course of the project particularly in relation to the 225 community members that WOFAN trained on hand pump repairs and maintenance so that the thousands of non-functioning boreholes grounded in various communities can be rehabilitated.
In order to complement the effort of WOFAN, SUBEB Bauchi under its Honorable Chairman Alhaji Abdullahi Dabo purchased hand pump repairs tools for all the trained youths in all 21 locations of the project site. Hajia Salamatu Garba acknowledged it is the first of its kind for SUBEB to make such intervention, and called on others to learn from them.
