The Rivers State government has advised the sanitation service providers in the state to take their work seriously or have their contracts terminated. Sole administrator of the Rivers State Waste Management Agency (RIWAMA), Chief Felix Obuah, disclosed this yesterday while addressing the service providers. Obuah declared that the task to keep Port Harcourt, the state capital and environs clean at all times is a mission that must be accomplished and frowned particularly at the nonchalant attitude of some contractors in the discharge of their duties.
He charged the contractors to ensure that their zones are kept clean at all times, and warned them against abandonment of compactors at dumpsites. He also directed for the immediate removal of all such compactors within 24 hours.
Obuah, while acknowledging that times are hard, urged service providers to remain resolute, adding that the agency was not unmindful of the challenges often encountered in their effort to keep the state clean and healthy.
The RIWAMA boss however gave kudos to the contractors who against all odds, have performed creditably well, urging them to keep up the tempo, assuring that all their entitlements will be cleared in no distant time.
