The Anambra state Deputy Governor, Dr Onyekachukwu Ibezim has urged the people of Onitsha North, Onitsha South, Ogbaru and Idemili North Local Government Areas to adhere strictly to the waste evacuation and drainage desilting exercise scheduled to hold in the areas for three days, starting from tomorrow, Saturday 2nd March, 2022.

Deputy Governor Ibezim said that the massive and intensive waste evacuation and drainage desilting exercise in the four Local Government Areas is aimed at encouraging cleanliness and healthy environment across the state.

Dr Ibezim who is in charge of the sanitation exercise, requested that occupants of the areas should join the exercise by cleaning up their compounds and surroundings.

Deputy Governor Ibezim reminded people from the four Local Government Areas that there will be total lockdown in areas from 7.00am to 6.00pm daily, from the 2nd of April to Monday 4th April that the exercise will end, in order to guarantee success of the exercise.

He explained that the wastes evacuated from the areas will be taking directly to dump sites which government of Professor Chukwuma Soludo has already concluded arrangements to convert into landfills, where the wastes will be used to  create wealth for the state.

Disclosing that the exercise will be replicated in other Local Government Areas in the state, Dr Ibezim said that the exercise will drastically prevent health hazards caused by unhygienic environment and poor waste management in the state. 

The Deputy Governor used the opportunity to call on the state residents to always keep their environments clean and make proper use of waste bins designated in strategic areas across the state by the state government.
