THE United Nations Children Fund (UNICEF) and the Bayelsa State Government have commenced a partnership intervention programme on water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) to enable the state cope with the problems relating to clean, quality and hygienic water posed by the floods which destroyed sources of water in impacted areas across the State.

Towards this end, the UNICEF and the state government during the week held a one-day stakeholders engagement meeting for the WASH intervention emergency programme for the seven impacted council areas of the state.

Declaring the programme open, the Bayelsa State Commissioner for Water Resources, Mr Keme Wariebi, com­mended UNICEF for the partnership.

He noted that though the state

 government was st i l l working assiduously to achieve the SDGs stipulated guidelines on clean, safe and hygienic water in all parts of the state, the intervention partnership by UNICEF was a welcome development.

He reiterated the commitment of the State Governor, Senator DouyeDiri-led prosperity administration in provision and execution of water projects in different parts of the state.

“Though as a state, we’re still grappling with meeting up the SDGs target on clean, safe and hygienic water for all Bayelsans, it’s worthy to note that on 12th September, 2021, following the Governor’s commitment towards the practice and observation of good hygienic conditions by our citizens, he, in company of dignitaries from all walks of life, flagged-off the state’s version of a programme tagged, ‘Clean Bayelsa: Use the Toilet Campaign”, he said.
