Abuja - The Kano State has extended its exercise to enhance cleanliness in the capital city by a week to ensure evacuation of solid waste from houses, drainages and other places.

Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje explained that the state government would partner with construction companies and self-help groups towards the success of the exercise in Kano City.

Ganduje said that the gesture from the companies is part of their social responsibility to the host community. He said extension of the operation is to make sure that every part of the state is clean ahead of the impending rainy season.

The governor thanked construction companies for supporting the state and added that the government expects additional commitment from them.

“We came with vigour to clean the city and we are counting on your support. However, this is only a short term measure before we come up with a sustainable arrangement as we cannot perpetually rely on your support,”
Ganduje said.

He said his administration accorded high priority to environmental sanitation.

“When there is clean and friendly environment people become healthier,” said Ganduje.
