Enugu State Government says it has cancelled this month’s sanitation exercise scheduled for Saturday to enhance candidates’ access to the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) examination centres.

Mrs Amaka Anajemba, Managing Director of Enugu State Government Waste Management Authority made this known on Friday in Enugu.

Anajemba said, in a statement, that the state government had to cancel the exercise because all movement, especially vehicles, would be restricted between 6am and 10am.

She, however, regretted any inconvenience the cancellation would have caused other residents of the state.

Across the border, Gov. Samuel Ortom of Benue has directed the Benue State Environmental Sanitation Authority (BENSESA) to postpone the sanitation exercise, scheduled to hold on Saturday, in Makurdi and Gboko, because of the UTME.

This is contained in statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Terver Akase, and issued to newsmen on Friday in Makurdi.

The governor’s directive is aimed at enabling candidates for the 2021 UTME who had technical issues in the last examination and are to sit for it again on Saturday to get to the designated centres without delay.

“There will be free movement of people in Makurdi and Gboko within the stipulated time for the sanitation exercise,” he said.

Ortom, however, enjoined those living in other towns of the state to comply with the restriction of movement between the hours of 7am and 9am and to also keep their surroundings clean. (Based on NAN reports)
