Abia State Government has frowned over the indiscriminate dumping of refuse on the Government properties. This was made public by the Chief of staff to the Governor, Chief ACB Agbazuere. It reads
The attention of Government has been drawn to the reckless assault on State infrastructure by unpatriotic individuals.
Human beings burn refuse on government asphalted roads, pour refuse into gutters which block drainages, erect shanties anywhere they like, build on drainage pathways and consequently create hideouts for criminals, promote environmental degradation, dent the ecstatic value of the State and waste our collective scarce resources.
It is unfathomable that people could drag their wickedness as far as pouring rubbish and all manner of dirts on the tarred but yet to be commissioned Osusu road in Aba.
The Deputy General Manager and all other Managers of Abia State Environmental Protection Agency (ASEPA) in Aba, the Acting Transition Committee Chairmen of Aba North and Aba South, the Transition Committee Chairmen of Osisioma, Umuahia North and Ohafia, are to immediately, without fail, checkmate these absurdities in their areas of jurisdiction.
Dumping of refuse into gutters must stop.
Damaging of tarred roads must stop.
Throwing waste from moving vehicles must stop.
All those involved in the illicit acts are advised, in their own interest, to change or face the attendant collateral consequences.
To be forewarned is to be forearmed!
