The Kwara State Government has again charged residents of the state to always clean their environment and also partake in the state monthly sanitation exercise in order to promote hygiene and prevent epidemic in our society.

The Commissioner for Environment, Mallam Shehu Ndanusa Usman represented by the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Environment, Hajia Afusat Ibrahim, gave the admonition yesterday while interacting with newsmen during the monthly sanitation exercise held in the state.

The Commissioner who frowned at the growing number of environmental offenders reminded residents of the state that, “the monthly sanitation is compulsory on all residents of Kwara because it was purposely designed for residents to clean their environment in order to promote hygienic environment and prevent epidemic in our society.”

Mallam Ndanusa further said, “today’s exercise is a bit backward in terms of what we have recorded in the last two months. Our people are not complying and they are becoming more aggressive.”

He however warned that henceforth, whoever violates the environmental laws such as indiscriminate dumping of refuse, sanitation offenders and all other violators will be sanctioned without fear or favour.

He also charged members of the public to always abide by relevant rules and regulations of environmental laws and also participate in the sanitation exercise by cleaning their residential and business environments.

On the coverage of the State capital during enforcement of sanitation, Mallam Ndanusa disclosed that, “We have about five teams touring the metropolis to ensure that residents comply with sanitation laws. We are not limited to the major roads, we also go into the nooks and crannies of the metropolis with the aim of ensuring total compliance.”

Mallam Ndanusa therefore warned that the ministry will no longer take it easy with anyone who flout the laws or the monthly sanitation exercise in the state, most especially, Ilorin metropolis.

The Commissioner explained that a total compliance by residents of the state would compliment government efforts in ensuring a clean and healthy environment for the inhabitants of the state.

Among the entourage of the Commissioner was the Permanent Secretary who represented the Honourable Commissioner, Senior Special Assistant on Sanitation, Mallam Isiaka Yaqub, President, National Youth Council of Nigeria, Mallam Aliu, Principal Officers from the Ministries among others.
