NESREA seals 6 companies in Enugu

07 November 2012, 16:12

Enugu - The National Environmental Standards Regulations and Enforcement Agency (NESREA) has sealed six companies in Enugu for non-compliance with environmental standards.
The Enugu State Coordinator of the agency, Mr Ralph Nnam, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Enugu on Wednesday that the companies were Arab Contractors, OAO Ltd, Alo Aluminums Coy, DVC Plastics, Hardis and Dromadas Nig. Ltd and Hargage Coy Ltd.
``We held a meeting with the Hon. Commissioner for Environment on Oct. 24 and the meeting was on why the facilities were sealed.
``And we explained the reasons for the sealing. It is as a result of non-compliance to the standards and regulation and we stated during the meeting how far we went up to the time of sealing.
``That we have paid familiarisation visit to all the facilities and then we have done inspections of the facilities and from the inspection we have issued notifications of the compliance concerns.
``Meaning things were observed that were not properly done. During our inspections we highlighted them all, in our compliance concerns then these were followed by abatement notices so all these were not complied with.
``It is of note that in some cases we had issued up to three compliance concerns none of them complied with, then we went ahead to issue abatement notices, in some cases twice, not complied then we now sealed the promises.”

Nnam said the companies had not complied with the standards and regulations and that the agency was awaiting further directives from its headquarters.
