RIWAMA Cancels Sanitation Exercise Billed For Saturday, June 26, 2021

As Sole Administrator, Bro. Felix Obuah Urges Residents To Stop Dumping Wastes On The Median

This month's sanitation exercise earlier billed to hold across the state on Saturday, June 26, 2021 has been cancelled.
The Sole Administrator, Rivers State Waste Management Agency (RIWAMA), Bro. Felix Obuah in a statement said the cancellation was due to very important government activities holding in the State on Saturday, June 26, 2021.

The Sole Administrator said in spite of the cancellation of the statewide sanitation exercise for this month, residents and those doing business in the state should sustain the healthy habit of keeping their surroundings clean.

Bro. Obuah further urged them to observe the dumping hours of 6pm to 12 mid night daily, and also ensure all wastes are dumped at RIWAMA approved receptacles only.

The RIWAMA Boss advised residents against dumping of wastes on the median, warning that anyone caught would be arrested and prosecuted.

He said it would be wrong for residents and people doing business in Port Harcourt, the state capital and its environs to dump their wastes indiscriminately and flout sanitation laws, warning that Sanitation Marshals are still on duty and would arrest anyone seen to be flouting the sanitation rules.

He reemphasized that any landlord or shop owner who allows the frontage of his house or shop to be littered with wastes, would be arrested and prosecuted.

Bro Obuah called on Local Government Council Chairmen to ensure that their areas of jurisdiction are kept clean, always.
