ODSG shuts shops for flouting sanitation law

No fewer than 10 shops at Oke-Ijebu in Akure, Ondo state capital, have been shut for flouting the monthly environmental sanitation law.
This is sequel to lackadaisical approach of the shop owners to the monthly environmental exercise which was aimed at keeping the state clean.
It was observed, that in other areas visited, residents were seen cleaning and clearing their surroundings.
Permanent Secretary, Ondo state Saste Management Authority, Engr. Ajibola Ogidan who led management team round the town to ascertain the level of compliance, commended residents for complying and urged them to take the exercise more seriously.
He however, frowned at the non- chanllant attitudes of some shop owners at Oke-ljebu and Shasha Market, stressing that everyone must endeavour to support government’s efforts towards keeping the state clean.
Director of the Waste Management Authority, Mr Ayo Adeyemo, warned against indiscriminate disposal of refuse, saying anyone caught will face the full wrath of the law.
While commending the efforts of the waste management authority, the Executive Officer of ZLGA, Dr. Abiola Basorun, charged residents to always ensure a healthy environment.
“A healthy environment will guarantee healthy living. Let us endeavour to embrace cleanliness, so as not to contract any kind of disease” , she stated.
Some areas visited during the exercise, included:, Lafe, Oshinle quarters, Oja-Oba, Owo- Ilesha expressway, Oloko among others, where residents showed high level of compliance to the law guiding the exercise.
