INTRODUCTION Water is life and critical to human existence. Excess water or insufficient water not properly managed is devastating to both man and environment. Since the creation of man, the aggregate volume of water within the hydrosphere has substantially remained constant in spite of increasing population, which implies the per capita share is decreasing on a daily basis. Over 70% of the earth’s surface is covered by water, but only 2.7% of this is freshwater. The world relies on freshwater for socio-economic development. Over 50% is locked up in ice caps in the polar regions of the earth; the balance is what is found in form of rivers, lakes and other fresh water bodies. Over 50% of this freshwater is controlled by only five (5) countries (viz: China, Brazil, Indonesia, Russia and Canada).

Water is life

INTRODUCTION (CONT’D) Countries seek to harness as much as possible the freshwater that circulates within their boundaries, by constructing dams, reservoirs and other appropriate infrastructure to utilize water efficiently. The Federal Ministry of Water Resources is involved in Integrated Water Resources Management for the optimal use of this resource. The primary aim of the Ministry is therefore to control as much as possible this water for overall industrial development and flood management. This is basically to ensure that there is enough water for the various sectoral needs such as domestic use, agriculture, power generation, solid mineral and Industrial development, tourism etc.

Water is life

INTRODUCTION (CONT’D) Nigeria has annual water resources potential of 319 billion cubic metres consisting of 267 billion cubic metres surface water and 52 billion cubic metres groundwater. The optimal development of this resource will protect the nation from drought, flood, erosion and increasing environmental challenges.

FOCUS OF THE MINISTRY The Federal Ministry of Water Resources is responsible for the formulation of Policy and Legal Framework to enhance integrated development and management of Water Resources in the areas of: 

Potable Water Supply and Sanitation;

Dams development and reservoir operation for flood control, bulk raw water supply, hydropower generation, irrigation, fisheries development, etc.;

Construction and operation of Irrigation infrastructure, land reclamation and drainage; and

Enhancement of ecosystem balance through regular monitoring and dissemination of hydrological data

RE-ESTABLISHMENT OF THE MINISTRY Prior to the inception of this Administration, water resources development and management were part of the mandate of the defunct Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Water Resources and this led to the gross neglect of water resources management with far reaching consequences. In order to accord priority to water resources development and management, FMWR was re-established by this Administration. Following this re-birth an emergency Meeting of the National Council on Water Resources was held to review critical issues affecting the sector with a view to developing appropriate strategies for water sector transformation in the country.

The Ministry has five (5) Technical Departments, four (4) Common Services Departments, Ten (10) Units, Four (4) Agencies and Twelve (12) River Basin Development Authorities (RBDAs).

RIVER BASIN DEVELOPMENT AUTHORITIES The River Basin Development Authorities (RBDAs) were set up as organs of government for grassroots development in the water sector. However, due to policy reversals, they were unable to perform optimally and this led to discontinuation of a number of very laudable people oriented programmes, stripping them of operational assets through auctioning, as well as leaving many projects uncompleted for a long time.

Following the re-establishment of the Federal Ministry of Water Resources, the RBDAs were re-organized to make them more responsive towards the development of rural water schemes, national food security and accelerated grassroots development. The critical areas of reorganization include: • The establishment of a Department of River Basin Operations and Inspectorate (RBO&I) for effective coordination;

RIVER BASIN DEVELOPMENT AUTHORITIES (CONT’D) •

Review of the governance structure - Creation of four Directorates instead of three as it was in the past; - Determination of appropriate manning level leading to the appointment of Managing Directors and four (4) Executive Directors drawn from career professionals. This was not the case in the past;

Optimal utilization of available land and water resources to support increased food production through irrigation;

Adoption of performance measurement mechanisms to ensure the attainment of key performance indicators (KPIs) by RBDAs.

RIVER BASIN DEVELOPMENT AUTHORITIES (CONT’D) •

Mobilization of resources through commercialization and private sector participation; and

Strengthening partnership with State Governments and other key stakeholders to facilitate effective synergy in water resources development and management.

MID-TERM REVIEW OF THE WATER SECTOR (2011 – 2013) Within the period under review, Mr. President directed a nationwide assessment of all uncompleted Federal Government Infrastructure projects across the country. The report of the assessment revealed a sizeable number of such projects in the Water Sector arising from policy reversals and budgetary constraints. The Ministry was therefore directed to ensure a systematic completion of the projects. Consequently, within available budgetary provisions and special interventions by Mr. President, the Ministry and River Basin Development Authorities (RBDAs) have made modest achievements in the implementation, execution and completion of several projects and programmes across the country in the areas of:

MID-TERM REVIEW OF THE WATER SECTOR - 2011 – 2013 (CONT’D) It is obvious that Nigeria cannot continue to depend on rain-fed agriculture alone considering the rate of its population growth, urbanization and climate change. Irrigation is therefore critical to the nation’s food production, agro-industrial raw material, employment generation and poverty alleviation.

5. Enhancement of Food Security: During the period under review the Ministry recorded some achievements in its efforts towards supporting the attainment of national food security with the newly developed irrigation and drainage projects with production of: Maize cropping through center pivot irrigation system at Azara-jere irrigation project site

75,802 metric tonnes of rice

51,631 metric tonnes of maize

CHALLENGES The tasks of carrying through the Transformation Agenda in the Water Sector are quite demanding but the Ministry has over the mid-term period remained resolute to deliver on its sectoral mandate against all odds. Some of the challenges are highlighted below: • Resource constraint: The relatively low budget allocation to the sector over the years has militated against the realization of set targets. In addition, budget releases have been inadequate and untimely; • Budget Implementation Period: Budget implementation period is effectively less than one year thereby affecting Project execution which utilizes the dry season for construction; • Weak Synergy between the Ministry and State/Local Governments; • Non-payment for bulk water supply by States and FCT to the Ministry; • Unsustained appropriation for constituency projects.

CHALLENGES (CONT’D) • Climate Change : Additional cost of rehabilitating damaged infrastructure after flooding and constructing new systems in drought prone areas; • Fewer Dams on the Benue river system ; More dams are required on the Benue river to mitigate the challenge of flooding and prevent losses of lives and properties; • Inadequate and obsolete equipment in the RBDAs hindered optimal performance; • Security challenges: There are frequent Communal disputes in some Project Locations impacting negatively on early projects completion; • Inadequate hydrological monitoring stations for better prediction of hydrological events.

FEDERAL MINISTRY OF WATER RESOURCES

CONCLUSION In conclusion , the present Administration’s Transformation Agenda has facilitated increased access to water supply from 58% to 65% and sanitation from 32% to 41% through the completion of nine additional dams, increased hectarage under irrigation by over 31,000 hectares with resultant increase in food production and enhancement of food security. In all, the water sector has generated job and created wealth for both skilled and unskilled labour force from the various completed and on-going projects nationwide. We are indebted to Mr. President for the bold step of re-establishing the Federal Ministry of Water Resources which has enhanced Nigeria’s capacity to judiciously manage its water resources.

On behalf of myself, the entire staff of the Ministry, its Agencies and Parastatals, I express our sincere appreciation to Mr. President, His Excellency Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, GCFR, for his exemplary leadership in championing the cause of water resources development. We pledge our unalloyed commitment to the full realization of the Transformation Agenda.
