Amazing!!! The Governor of Sokoto has directed that 1 million Naira be given to the cleanest street every month, as a way to ensure that the state remains clean and sparkling. He said this at the flag off of the state’s special environmental sanitation programme.
The Governor directed the State Environmental Protection Agency to establish a Department of Waste Management whose functions include adequate waste collection, recovery and disposal arrangements of waste and proper waste mapping.
Sokoto would observe environmental sanitation every Saturday for one month, after which the exercise would continue on the first Saturday of every month, he said.
Gov. Aminu Tambuwal, the former speaker of the House of Representatives, said the sanitation exercise would ensure regular and speedy evacuation of refuse in the Sokoto metropolis in particular and all parts of the state.
