By Our Reporter

The Abia State Environmental Protection Agency, ASEPA Manager, Ohafia Waste Management Zone, Hon. James Ndukwe has stressed that it is imperative that all drainage channels be kept free of silts and refuse to avoid flooding of homes that could lead to the loss of lives and property.

Interacting with a cross section of Journalists shortly after the month of July, 2021 sanitation exercise in Ohafia, Hon. Ndukwe decried that Ohafia indigenes/residents are yet to own the exercise, as most of them still see it as only Government sanitation exercise.

Hon. Ndukwe called on such group of people to turn a new leaf and corporate with ASEPA during the monthly cleanup exercise, adding, “We must comply with the state government’s directive on monthly sanitation for healthy living. Also a healthy nation is a wealthy nation”.

He advised to always keep their environment clean to be healthy, this according to Hon. Ndukwe can be achieved by avoiding indiscriminate dumping of refuse.

Hon. Ndukwe who monitored the exercise at Ohafia Girls Secondary School, Amaekpu, Elu, Ebem and Mami market opposite Army barracks, and Ebem Ohafia, implored residents to ensure that the cleanup exercise was observed at their various houses during the period.

The Ohafia zone ASEPA Manager lauded  the determination of Governor Okezie Ikpeazu to keep Abia environment clean at all times, and called on Abians to reciprocate the state government’s gesture by protecting and keeping their environment clean.
