The campaign by RIWAMA is geared at keeping residents and those doing business in the State constantly aware and alive to their obligation of not only keeping their homes, offices, markets and other surroundings clean at all times but also adhere to the sanitation laws of the State by dumping all wastes at government approved receptacles between the hours of 6pm – 12midnight daily.
The RIWAMA team emphasized the efforts of the State government through the Agency in both financial and infrastructural terms to show the seriousness of government in creating no room for dirts in any part of the State capital.
Not complying with the laws and acting in contradiction to the Agency’s simple demands therefore, will attract dire consequences, the RIWAMA boss warned.
“We therefore plead that you help the Agency and help yourselves live a health life”, he further appealed.
