The Governor of Abia State, Okezie Ikpeazu, on Saturday made an unscheduled inspection visit to some refuse disposal sites within the Umuahia, the state’s capital to check for compliance to the State’s environmental waste management policy.
The Governor who expressed sadness over the discharge of wastes in the state capital said the visit was to ensure the roll-out policy is adhered to strictly.
He said the decision to intervene was to facilitate the disappearance of wastes across the state capital, as trucks were already seen carting away waste from the streets.
He also engaged the supervisor of the environmental intervention, Otah Ukariwo, in a conversation on the need to keep Abia Sate clean at all times and to clearly understand if there were challenges.
Governor Ikpeazu promised that the state government would support the effort and put all the necessary machinery in place to realize its goal.
