Managing Director of the Lagos Water Corporation, Mr Muminu Badmus, has described a recent media report on an exercise carried out by the agency as untrue.
In a statement on Friday, Mr Badmus noted that the report captioned ‘Three firms bid for Lagos Water Project’ and published in a daily newspaper, was not accurate.
According to Mr Badmus, the LWC published an Expressions of Interest (EOI) for the development of the 70MGD Adiyan Phase II Water Scheme through Public-Private Partnership in three national dailies and Global Water Intelligence, an internationally reputable water sector publication.
Subsequently, seven firms expressed interest and four firms were shortlisted after the evaluation process. They are AG Gold Trust Nigeria Limited, Vision Scape Water Solutions Limited/Metito, Veolia/Shoreline Group and Abegoa and Naston & Partners.
He insisted that due diligence was carried out during the procurement process that led to the emergence of the above-mentioned firms, adding that, on completion of the project, it will serve additional 3 million people in the western axis of the State.
Mr Badmus assured residents that the corporation remains committed to ensuring delivery of potable water to all households in the state, in consonance with the implementation of the Lagos Water Supply Master Plan.
