Osun reintroduces monthly sanitation exercise

By Michael Ofulue, Osogbo

As part of its renewed efforts to rid the state of dirts and indiscriminate dumping of refuse, Osun State Government has announced its resolve to reintroduce the monthly environmental sanitation exercise, effective from 2024.

The government read a riot act and expressed its readiness to arrest and prosecute anyone found culpable of disobeying sanitation law.

Commissioner for Environment and Sanitation, Mayowa Adejoorin made the disclosure while featuring on a current affairs radio programme in Osogbo, the Osun state capital.

The Commissioner said the administration of Senator Ademola Adeleke has continued to prioritize cleanliness and promotion of personal hygienes of the people of the State.

He, therefore, called on the people to continue to support the move of the state government to rid the state of indiscriminate dumping of refuse in unauthorized places.

The Commissioner further urged residents to continue to patronise the over 300 private waste disposal operators engaged by the state government for effective management of their refuse and waste.

While condemning open defecation across the state, Adejoorin warned that anybody found culpable of doing it in the public will be dealt with in line with the dictates of the law

He stated that environmental sanitation officers will be going round to ensure that the citizens comply with the government’s directive.
