The Governor said there were enough diesel for distribution to enable the powering of all boreholes in the affected areas, promising that the problem would be resolved immediately.

Residents of Damaturu and its environs had been battling with acute water scarcity as a result of the destruction of 330kv electricity line by some unknown vandals.
