Residents of Yallan Guruza and some parts of Hayin Kwarin Misau community in Gombe can smile again.

Erosion has been a major crisis in the communities, but the Ecological fund office has come to their rescue.

The office had on 30th May 2017 awarded the contract of soil erosion control and improvement of road linking the two communities.

The erosion problem has been an issue for the past 35 years with roads and other infrastructures badly affected.

Sulaiman Adamu, the village head of Sabon garin Bogo told Bounce News that the problem has destroyed houses and made many families relocate from their communities.

Umar Abubakar of Hayin Kwarin Misau community whose house was at the risk of collapse thanked the government and ecological fund office for saving his house.

"I had planned to relocate this year but with this development now I will remain in the community", he said.

Some other residents of the communities told Bounce News that the government has done well for the communities, but they still look up to the government to come and address the issue of portable drinking water.

Gombe State Commissioner For Environment, Sa'adatu Sa'ad Mustapha appreciated ecological fund office for the kind gesture 

She called on residents to ensure they clean up their environment to avoid flood disaster in the state.

While commissioning the erosion control project at Yallan Guruza, Minister of Water Resources Sulaiman Adamu Kazaure said that the federal government is poised on delivering more dividends of democracy.
