The Network of Water Rights Initiative (WASH Rights Network), a network of over 20 grassroots civil society organization focused on advocating for access to clean water and sanitation, is set to monitor the progress of the Enugu State government in fulfilling its promise of providing access to clean drinking water to the people of Enugu within 180 days from the day of inauguration.
During the election campaign, the Enugu State government made a promise to provide access to clean drinking water to the people of Enugu within 180 days from the day of inauguration. With just 30 days left for the fulfilment of this promise, the WASH Rights Network is driving the process of monitoring the progress made in fulfilment of this critical campaign promise.

The lack of access to clean water has had debilitating impacts on the health and socio-economic wellbeing of residents of Enugu State for far too long.
Recognizing that access to clean drinking water is a basic human right that should not be denied to anyone, the Network commends the government in taking the bold step to set a target to put an end to this violation of human rights in Enugu State by ensuring that every citizen and residents in the state have access to clean drinking water.
As the final day for promise approaches, the Network has instituted an Online Countdown Platform (https://washrightsnetwork.org/accountability-tracker/) to monitor the progress of the Enugu State government.
As part of the countdown, the Network will be adopting an evidence-based approach to document any progress made, which will include site visits, interviews with stakeholders, weekly accountability radio programmes, and an interactive online feedback platform to collate feedback on the status of water supply in different localities within Enugu Metropolis from the public.
The Network will also be sharing feedbacks from the field with the government while constructively engaging them to ensure that they are aware of the importance of fulfilling their promise and the negative impacts of not meeting the target.
The WASH Rights Network calls on all stakeholders, including civil society organizations, media houses, and concerned citizens, to join in monitoring the progress of the Enugu State government in fulfilling their promise.
The Network believes that through collective efforts, we can hold the government accountable and ensure that they deliver on their promise.
The WASH Rights Network will be providing regular updates on their monitoring activities on their Online Countdown Platform (https://washrightsnetwork.org/accountability-tracker/) and social media platforms.
The Network also invites feedback and contributions from stakeholders.
