Gov Wike Pledge Commitment, Gives Sanitation Service Providers Seven Days Ultimatum

Barely 24 hours after a former governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress, (APC), in Rivers State, Dr. Dakuku Peterside called on Governor Nyesom Ezenwo Wike to tackle the worsening refuse situation in the state capital and its environs, the Rivers State governor has given all Sanitation Service Providers seven days ultimatum to effectively clean up their respective beats.

Assuring Rivers state of his administration’s commitment to return Port Harcourt to its Garden City status, the governor declared that at the expiration of the seven days ultimatum, Service Providers found wanting will have their contracts revoked.

Governor Wike also stated that his administration will improve the sanitary condition of Port Harcourt and Obio/Akpor Local Government Areas through diligent implementation of the environmental sanitation agenda of his administration.

Speaking during an interactive meeting with service providers of the Rivers State Waste Management Agency (RIWAMA) yesterday, August 5, 2019, at the Government House, Port Harcourt, Governor Wike said the sanitary condition of Port Harcourt and Obio/Akpor Local Government Areas is unacceptable.

"As I go out daily, I feel unhappy because of the filth in different parts of the  state capital.  The job of cleaning this town must be done”.

"At present, Port Harcourt is dirty and we must accept this fact. I stated this during my inauguration address. But we are determined to change the situation", he said.

Governor Wike charged all environmental service providers to live up their responsibilities and justify the fees paid by the state government.

He said; "I was not the person who awarded the contracts. I don't even know the contractors. I have not restricted contracts to my supporters.  Several of you are from the opposition parties, But we must endeavour to ensure that all parts of the state capital remain clean",

Governor Wike and the Environmental Sanitation Service Providers of RIWAMA examined all the sanitation beats in Port Harcourt and Obio/Akpor Local Government Areas.

In this interview with EDITH CHUKU, reacting to the spite of insecurity in the area, he urged parents to keep their children in serious surveillance while assuring that the legacy of the peaceful disposition of the area will be restored.

Excerpts:

Two months ago, you posited that in no distance time, cases of crime in your community will be long forgotten but that seems not to have been achieved yet. Why?

I can assure you, which you are a witness to, that there has been a huge success in that area. Yes, we might have not been able to curb the situation entirely but everyone will attest to the fact that there is progress, achieving that is not when you apprehend one or few persons, you clap your hands, go and sleep that you have succeeded. No, it’s continuous. Security is a continuous thing.
