Rivers citizens urged to assist in sanitation exercise

26 June 2015, 11:18 Okoro Chinedu

Lagos - The Rivers State Waste Management Agency (RIWAMA) Administrator, Felix Obuah, has called on residents of Port Harcourt and people of the state to fully participate in Saturday’s monthly sanitation exercise.

Obuah said the call became necessary in keeping with the avowed commitment and efforts of the State Governor, Nyesom Wike, to restore cleanliness in the capital city as well as the entire state.

Obuah further appealed to residents of Port Harcourt and environs to comply with the restriction of the order during the period of the exercise from 7am to 10am (local time), except those on essential duties.

“The RIWAMA Sole Administrator also urges owners of trucks (individuals and cooperate organizations) to make available their trucks for the evacuation of wastes from the various points to designated receptacles in the respective areas,” Obuah’s spokesperson, Jerry Needam, said.

“While appealing for the people’s support for the realization of this administration’s vision of a clean and safe environment, Obuah warns that anyone who fails to participate in the exercise and flouts the restriction order will be made to face the full wrath of the law without fear or favour.”

The monthly sanitation exercise is held on the last Saturday of each month.
