The Rivers State waste management authority (RIWAMA) has said that this year’s monthly sanitation exercise will start on Saturday, the 27th day of January across the 23 Local Government Areas of Rivers State from 7am – 10am.
This was contained in a statement by the Administrator of the Rivers State Waste Management Agency, Bro Felix Obuah, who announced the sanitation exercise guidelines on Thursday in Port Harcourt.
According to the statement, there will be restriction of human and vehicular movements during the period of the exercise.
The RIWAMA administrator also appealed to all Rivers people and those living and doing business in the State to participate fully in the sanitation exercise.
Mr Obuah equally urged owners of trucks (individuals and cooperate organizations) to make available their trucks for the evacuation of waste that would be generated during the period of the sanitation exercise.
He also urged the people of the State to support the vision of a clean and safe environment that will return Portharcourt to its garden city status and enjoined Caretaker Committee Chairmen in the 23 Local Government Councils of the state to ensure strict compliance with the guidelines.
