Delta acts on "ugly" structures

16 May 2014, 08:32Augustine Osayande

Abuja - The Delta State will prosecute persons that defy orders to remove debris and paintings on all premises particularly along the major roads in Warri South, Uwvie and Udu Local Government Areas in the state.

The Environmental Sanitation Task Force gave the order on Friday.

This was disclosed in a Special Announcement by the State Ministry of Environment.

“It has come to the notice of the Special Environmental Sanitation Task Force that most premises are now in a deplorable condition following the removal of illegal structures that were attached to them. These premises are presently very unkempt as a result giving the metropolis an ugly look.”

The ministry added that owners and occupiers of such premises had two weeks within which their houses must be painted and their environment thoroughly cleaned up.

It added that the premises where sewage is discharged into the public drain, those with rough fences and unsightly environment should correct such observed lapses while those still using containers as well as similar structures to display wares should remove them immediately.

“All premises, Estates, Plazas, Shops, Places of worship, Eateries and other Business Centres in the area are to also make arrangements to use the waste collectors assigned to their respective areas, as all forms of illegal dumping of waste are not allowed”.

The ministry said mobile courts had been put in place to try all those who contravened sanitation laws, while House to House inspection by Environmental Health Officers will be intensified.
