Let’s clean up Anambra streets – Nwankwo



ANAMBRA State Ministry of Environment raised its supervision of the environment by specially monitoring last month’s sanitation exercise in the aftermath of the #EndSARS protests and subsequent unrest across the country.

  Commissioner for Environment, Obi Nwankwo who was represented by the Permanent Secretary Emmanuel Okafor, during the exercise urged Anambra people to join hands with the government in cleaning the entire state.

  “We want to tell Ndi Anambra that this is our state and we need it to be kept clean and safe, as the government has been striving to ensure that we live in a very clean environment.”

  Mr Nwankwo directed that the ministry’s contractors and all zonal supervisors had should ensure that burnt tyres, road blocks and barricades were cleared immediately to ease movement of people and vehicles.

  He emphasised the need for people to stay home and mark the three-hours clean-up exercise held every last Saturday of the month to avoid being arraigned.

  “Those, who worked were rewarded with face caps and T-shirts, while fliers were given out to members of the public to further inform them of the need to improve our environment,” the commissioner said.

  Mrs Gloria Nwaokpu, a trader in ARROMA Junction commended the efforts of the state government, and thanked the Ministry of Environment for the free t-shirts and caps to encourage compliance.
