Ogun State Government says it will henceforth seal any structure found with clogged drainage in accordance with the environmental law of the State.

A statement signed by the Commissioner for Environment, Mr. Bolaji Oyeleye, said government has observed with concern that many residents have wilfully allowed their drainages to be blocked by silt, thereby inhibiting free flow of rain water.

It added that the impact of the unfortunate flash-flood that occurred recently in Abeokuta was largely mitigated by the standard drainages constructed along with the massive road infrastructure in the State capital.

While soliciting the cooperation from the general public towards ensuring a safer environment for all, the statement enjoined residents to play their part by clearing clogged silts in drainages in accordance with the environmental law of the State.
