The monthly sanitation exercise earlier billed to hold across the state on Saturday, April 24, 2021 has been cancelled.
The Sole Administrator, Rivers State Waste Management Agency (RIWAMA), Bro. Felix Obuah, in a statement said in spite of the cancellation of the statewide sanitation exercise for this month, residents and those doing business in the state should sustain the healthy habit of keeping their surroundings clean.
He further urged them to observe the dumping hours of 6pm to 12 midnight daily, and also ensure all wastes are dumped at RIWAMA approved receptacles only.
Obuah said it would be wrong for residents and people doing business in Port Harcourt, the state capital and its environs to dump their wastes indiscriminately and flout sanitation laws, warning that Sanitation Marshals are still on duty and would arrest anyone seen to be flouting the sanitation rules.
While giving kudos to Governor Nyesom Ezenwo Wike for his continued support and encouragement to RIWAMA, the Sole Administrator also urged residents and those doing business in the state to reciprocate the good gestures of the governor by ensuring that sanitation laws are obeyed and their homes and business places kept clean at all times.
He re-emphasised that any landlord or shop owner who allows the frontage of his house or shop to be littered with wastes, would be arrested and prosecuted.
