RIWAMA has cancelled the November sanitation exercises In Rivers state making it the third consecutive time this exercise was cancelled.
Rivers state people are wondering what will be the reasons of this continuous cancellation especially now that the state is very dirty and unhealthy.
“Maybe gov Nyesom Wike has not released fund needed for the exercise, or the RIWAMA is not ready for the exercise ” – Rivers State people reasoned.
DEZ MAYORZ effort to reach the RIWAMA chairman bro Felix Obuah was futile after they released the press statement below :
RIWAMA Announces Cancellation Of Sanitation Exercise For November, 2018
This month’s state-wide sanitation exercise billed for Saturday, November 24, 2018 has been cancelled.
A statement issued from the office of the Sole Administrator, Rivers State Waste Management Agency (RIWAMA), Bro Felix Obuah said the cancellation is as a result of various official engagements across the State requiring unimpeded and free flow of traffic.
The agency however, enjoined all residents and business operators in the State to ensure that their immediate surroundings are always tidied up and kept clean for healthy living.
Despite the compulsory sanitation exercise according to the statement, environmental sanitation should be cultivated as a habit and part of the living culture for all those living and doing business in the State.
The RIWAMA Sole Administrator, Bro Obuah therefore advised that all hands should be on deck in complementing the efforts of Gov Wike administration to make the State the cleanest among its peers and safest for human habitation by taking advantage of all the necessary facilities including dumpsites and receptacles to dispose of wastes at government approved time of 6pm to 12 midnight daily and ensuring that the drainages and waterways are not obstructed to keep the State neat and flood free.
