Kano State refuse evacuation officers might have gone asleep as most streets in Sabon Gari have been overflowed by debris and brigandage in the city centre.
More worrisome is the heap of refuse dump at the side view of Christ Apostolic Church, off Enugu road, and other streets respectively in major roads within Sabon Gari vicinity in Kano State.
Most of the refuse reportedly were caused by flood and ground water orchestrated by the raining season. All effort to see the sanitation coordinator failed due to the bureaucracy around his office that made access to him excruciating.
Residents of Sabin Gari who spoke to our correspondent attributed the situation to insensitivity of state government sanitary inspectors to the occupants of the area who are predominantly non indigenes.
A staff with one International hotel on Enugu road, who spoke in confidence, said they suffered persistent flood water problems in the area due to poor sanitary condition and care.
Efforts to seek the attention of Commissioner of information, Garba Mohammed, proved abortive due to protocol.
However, the DG media and communications, Government House Kano, Alhaji Salihu Tanko Yakassai, who showed a lot of concern, however sought to know the specific areas affected by refuse dump to furnish the appropriate authority in charge of sanitation for urgent action.
After informing the agency, Salihu promptly notified that the agency would sweep the areas with a view to evacuating the refuse dump, urging residents to draw the attention of the sanitary officers to other areas within the vicinity.
