The Rivers State government has announced a restriction of human and vehicular movement as this month’s environmental sanitation exercise holds today, September 30, across the 23 Local Government Areas of the state. The period of the exercise stretches from 7am to 10am.

Sole Administrator of Rivers State Waste Management Agency (RIWAMA), Bro. Felix Obuah, who announced the sanitation exercise in a statement in Port Harcourt, called on all those living and doing business in the state to fully participate in this Saturday’s sanitation exercise.

Obuah enjoins Caretaker Committee Chairmen of the 23 local government areas of the state to ensure full participation of residents in their areas in the sanitation exercise and also ensure compliance with the restriction of movement order during the period.

He called on security agencies to effectively enforce the restriction of movement order within the stipulated hours except those on essential duties, who are also advised to collect Exemption Permit from RIWAMA.

The RIWAMA Sole Administrator urged owners of trucks (individuals and cooperate organisations) to make available their trucks for the evacuation of waste that would be generated as a result of the sanitation exercise.

While appealing for the people’s support for the realisation of Governor Nyesom Wike’s vision of a clean and safe environment, Obuah warned that anyone who fails to participate in the exercise or flouts the restriction of movement order will be arrested and charged to the sanitation court.
