Listen to article

The Government of Abia State has declared that it would not give up on in its efforts towards restoring the good sanitary condition of Aba and the entire state.

Mr. Philemon Ogbonna who is the commissioner for Environment made this known while monitoring this month’s clean-up exercise in Aba described it as impressive considering the active participation of the residents explaining that keeping a clean and healthy environment should not be left to the government alone.

According to Mr Ogbonna, the state has improved its environmental cleanliness under Governor Alex Otti, and should be sustained. He appreciated the consistency in the exercise which led to the huge success under this one year in office.

On the attitude of some residents who default, the environmental commissioner said that more sanitation mobile courts will be set up, though the state government is not interested in punishing any offender but expects them to join in building the state while commending Mayors of Obingwa and Aba South local government for their efforts in the new Abia Agenda.

Also speaking, the House Committee Chairman for Environment and Urban Renewal, and member representing Ohafia South State Constituency Mr Kalu Mba Nwoke stressed the need for security personnel to partner Ministry of Environment to ensure smooth movement of the exercise in the state.

Nwoke similarly expressed his worries over personnel who embark on commercial tricycle operations, thereby aiding defaulting public during the period of the exercise, and pleaded with the Abia State Commissioner of Police to charge his officers and men to respect the monthly three hours mapped out for the exercise in Abia State.

He also restated the need for business owners and buried families, conveying corpses from the morgue to wait for the period to elapse before embarking on their journeys.
