The communiqué signed by Dare Oduluyi of WaterAid and Musa Usman; the rapporteur of the dialogue, “the civil society should advocate for the passage of the water policy.”

Oduluyi reiterated that the CSOs should push for water policy process.

On the role of media in the policy, he said: “It should also take the lead by following up on the issue of the water policy.”

Besides, stakeholders’ involvement, community and religious leaders should be engaged by mobilising their people to protect the water facilities.
