Sole Administrator of the Rivers State Waste Management Agency (RIWAMA), Felix Obuah has terminated the contracts of all the desilting contractors engaged by the Agency.

During a meeting with the concerned contractors on Monday, Obuah announced that the sack, which is with immediate effect, became necessary due to the lukewarm attitude of the contractors to their job and which is no longer tolerable by the Agency.

The Agency, the Sole Administrator said, can no longer allow the contractors continue to flout its directives with impunity.

Obuah stated that same stubbornness of the contractors was partly responsible for the regrettable flooding being recorded in parts of the state for which the Governor, Barr. Nyesom Wike is very disturbed.

The Sole Administrator also frowned at the continued depositing of solid wastes into gutters and waterways by residents, which has been worsened by the refusal of the contractors to evacuate the wastes from the gutters early enough as a result of  which they erode back into the gutters, causing avoidable blockage of waterways.

The action, Obuah warned, would make subsequent contractors take their job and the Agency’s directives very serious.
