The Sole Administrator, Rivers State Waste Management Agency (RIWAMA), Bro. Felix Obuah, has observed that Port Harcourt, the state capital, now wears a clean new look.
A statement signed by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Jerry Needam, said that Bro. Obuah made the observations shortly after monitoring some major streets and roads in the famed Garden City while on his early morning monitoring exercise today, Saturday, September 7, 2019.
“The RIWAMA boss attributed the improved sanitation in the city to the efforts of service providers working with the agency, whom he said have improved in their service delivery standard.
While commending the service providers, he called on them to not only maintain the tempo but also do more by ensuring that all roads and streets in Port Harcourt and its environs are clean and healthy, daily,” the statement said.
It said that Bro. Obuah also appealed to residents and those doing business in the state to observe sanitation laws by dumping their wastes only at government approved receptacles and to adhere to the dumping hours of 6pm to 12 midnight.
“He warned that it is still an offence to dump wastes indiscriminately on the roads and at unauthorised places and outside the approved dumping hours, stressing that anyone caught would be arrested and prosecuted, as such practices contribute in defacing the city.
The RIWAMA Sole Administrator also warned unregistered service providers and truck drivers against dumping wastes in the state illegally,” the statement further said.
