The European Union Ambassador to Nigeria, Mr Ketil Karlsen, has stressed the need for all Nigerians to have access to potable water.
Karlsen stated this on Wednesday while inaugurating a solar-powered borehole project and a school sanitation facility at Logwom Kwi, Riyom Local Government Area of Plateau State.
The ambassador said the EU partnership with federal and state governments had boosted efforts to provide safe drinking water for Nigerians.
He urged Nigerians and other stakeholders to replicate the efforts to achieve the goal.
Governor Simon Lalong promised that his administration would continue to provide potable water for the people.
Lalong, who was represented by the Secretary to the State Government, added that his government paid N500m as counterpart fund to facilitate the execution of the project.
UNICEF representative in Nigeria, Mr Peter Hawkins, told Nigerians to shun open defecation.
