The controversial National Water Resources Bill, 2020, re-emerged on the floor of the House of Representatives amidst suspicions from members.

The leadership, however, assured the lawmakers that the new version of the legislation would capture all the interests of the states.

Chairman of the House Committee on Water Resources, Sada Soli, said the Minister of Justice and Attorney-General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami (SAN), as well as commissioners for justice and attorneys-general of the 36 states of the federation had been consulted and the opinions received would be attached to the bill and distributed to all members.

A member of the House from Benue State, Mark Gbillah, had raised the alarm when the bill was to be taken for the first reading.
