ODSEPA trains officers on compliance monitoring

The Special Adviser to Ondo State Governor on Environment, Mr Oyeniyi Oseni has underscored the importance of training and retraining of core workforce of the State Environmental Protection Agency, ODSEPA  to deliver on its core mandates.

Oseni stated this  while declaring open a one day  training for the technical officers posted and deployed to the new agency in Akure.

The  training programme which took place at the State Information Technology Agency, SITA provided a veritable opportunity for the staff  to be introduced to the best practices in environmental compliance monitoring.

In a paper on “Building the Capacity for Effective Compliance Monitoring”, the Special Adviser took the officers through the labyrinth of what they needed to know and do before, during and after embarking on compliance monitoring of a given factory or an industrial sector.

According to him the checklist of one factory or an industrial sector differ from one factory or industrial sector to another arguing that for an effective and efficient compliance monitoring to have taken place, the compliance monitoring officers must adequately be equipped of the best practices in each factory or an industrial sector or specification.

According to a release signed by the Director of Information, ODSEPA, Bolu  Ajijo, Oseni admonished  participants drawn from all departments of the agency to live up to expectation in order not to betray  Ondo State Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu,  for resuscitating ODSEPA after many years in  limbo.

While commending the robust relationship between himself and the Commissioner for Environment, Mr Sunday Akinwalire, the Special Adviser allayed the fear of possible overlapping of functions between  the ministry and  agency as expressed in some quarters.

Earlier in her opening remarks, the Administrative Secretary of ODSEPA,  Princess Korede Giwa thanked the Special Adviser for approving the training  at short notice, promising the knowledge acquired  definitely help the agency to deliver on her mandates.
