Keep Kano Clean campaign commissioned

01 June 2015, 08:57Augustine Osayande

Abuja - The Kano State Government has flagged off a seven-day operation to maintain cleanliness in the region.

State Governor, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, launched the so-called Operation Keep Kano Clean at Gyadi Sports Complex in Kano City at the weekend.

He said a master plan for the beautification of the state would soon be designed.

The governor said that the plan would give Kano metropolis the status of a truly modern city.

He added that the state’s old Sanitation Laws would be revised in line with world environmental best practices.

He promised to restore night refuse disposal system in the state to avoid traffic hold ups associated with day time refuse clearance.

Ganduje added that a special road cleaning arrangement would also be introduced for major roads in the state capital.

He stated that his administration would also recruit female sanitary officers to inspect homes, particularly toilets, kitchens and rooms for better sanitation habits in the state.

He warned that heads of households that failed to adhere to basic hygienic and sanitation would be prosecuted.

“Environmental sanitation starts with personal hygiene. We must enforce cleanliness personally and within our environments to make our society a better place for all”, the governor stressed.

He added that special attention would be given to abattoirs to prevent contamination of meat and spread of disease.

The governor lamented that many markets in the state were in a sorry state due to poor sanitation behavior of the people.

He directed local government chairmen in the state to augment government efforts by repairing mini refuse disposal vans provided by the state government to penetrate refuse dump sites in areas not reachable by conventional trucks.
