FG seeks law to regulate borehole drilling

Director General of the Nigeria Hydrological Services Agency (NIHSA), Moses Beckley, has said that the Federal Government was sponsoring a bill to regulate the indiscriminate drilling of borehole.
Beckley, who disclosed this to LINKNAIJA, on Monday, in Abuja, said the move was a better way to curb over extraction of water which may cause problem for the country.
Beckley also said that if the bill was passed, it won’t affect water scarcity especially for those residing in rural areas. But advised states government, as a matter of urgency to construct waterways and once that was done there would be no need for borehole drilling.
“The issue here is that what is expected the federal government in collaboration with state government should construct water ways or water supply and once that is done there won’t be no need for borehole drilling indiscriminately.
