With the expiration of the Monday, February 17, 2020 deadline given by the Rivers State Waste Management Agency (RIWAMA) for Cart Pushers to leave the streets and roads of Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital, and its environs, the Sole Administrator of the Agency, Bro. Felix Obuah, has reiterated his earlier warning failure of which the carts would be impounded and destroyed.
Bro. Obuah renewed the warning while addressing Cart Pushers along Ada George, Elioparanwo, NTA, East West Roads in Obio Akpor Local Government Area during his routine morning monitoring exercise of major streets and roads in Port Harcourt, on Tuesday. He said the ban on Cart Pushers remains in force, insisting that it would be in their best interest if they heed the warning.
The Sole Administrator explained that the ban became necessary as their activities have become a nuisance and turning some areas to an eyesore with indiscriminate dumping of refuse on the streets and roads.
Bro. Obuah regretted that the activities of the Cart Pushers are not only condemnable but also amounts to a deliberate attempt at sabotaging the efforts of the Agency to restore the Garden City status of Port Harcourt.
He pointed out that a lot of resources were being committed by the environmentally-friendly Governor of the State, Nyesom Wike, to ensure a clean and healthy state, adding that RIWAMA would not fold its hands and allow individuals or groups to sabotage his efforts.
Bro. Obuah called on residents and those doing business in the State to reciprocate the Governor’s kind gesture by keeping their homes and surroundings clean at all times, noting that cleanliness is next to godliness.
