The United Nations Children Fund (UNICEF) says Nigeria needs N3 billion annually to improve access to clean water in the country.
According to NAN, Peter Hawkins, UNICEF representative in Nigeria, spoke on Sunday during an interview with the news agency in Abuja.
Hawkins said the increase in population is taking Nigeria backwards on improving access to clean water.
He said Nigeria needs to seek alternative means to improve access to clean water, adding that sustainable water storage is required to prevent acute shortages.
