“The project will be implemented over eight months and the Hadejia-Jama’are-Komadugu-Yobe Basin Trust Fund will execute the project.”
According to the statement, the Trust Fund is jointly funded by the six states of Bauchi, Borno, Jigawa, Kano, Plateau and Yobe, in collaboration with the Federal Government of Nigeria.
