Ogun State government says its monthly Environmental Sanitation will hold on Saturday, 26 of September, 2020 from 7a.m to 10a.m after a long break due to COVID-19 Pandemic.
A statement signed by the State Commissioner, Ministry of Environment, Mr. Abiodun Abudu-Balogun said although there would be no restriction of movement in all the 20 Local Government Areas, residents are enjoined to use the opportunity to clear their drainage channels and clean their surroundings.
It stated that wastes should be dropped at designated points, as anyone found dumping waste in inappropriate places; such as gutters, canals and water-ways would be prosecuted in accordance with the State Environmental Laws.
The statement urged residents to maintain social distancing during the exercise, calling for their continuous support and law enforcement agencies to make the exercise a success.
