The building of the dam started in 2006 and it has reached 100 percent completion.
Adamu, who inspected the project Thursday, said that apart from the irrigation component of the project, the multipurpose dam with a reservoir capacity of about 186 million cubic metre of water, could also generate 2.2 megawatt of electricity and supply water to 2.2 million people in the surrounding communities up to the ancient city of Zaria.
He commended the level of job done on the project and charged the company to facilitate the construction of the roads for easy access.
The minister had earlier commissioned the National Secretariat of the National
Water Resources Capacity Building in Kaduna.
At the event, he noted that the institute has played a significant role, especially in the collaborative research and capacity building in the sector.
The centre was built in collaboration with the World Bank to address some specific needs of the sector.
