Rivers Waste mManagement Agency, RIWAMA, has urged caretaker committee chairmen of local government councils in the state to join Governor Nyesom Wike in his campaign to keep the state clean, healthy and safe.
The RIWAMA sole of administrator, Brother Felix Obuah who made the appeal while playing host to the caretaker committee chairmen yesterday in his office in Port Harcourt, explained that Governor Wike was desirous of a clean, healthy and safe state, and also in a hurry to return Port Harcourt, the state capital to its former ‘Garden City’ status.
He encouraged them to set up sanitation committees in their respective local government areas and to ensure that the people of their areas fully participate in all organised sanitation exercises, as well as comply strictly with the laws and regulations governing the monthly exercise in the state.
The sole administrator further warned the council chairmen not to see their appointments as political patronage for themselves and their family members, but a duty to serve humanity and God.
According to him, “Do not use your positions to create division among the Peoples Democratic Party PDP, and the people in your Local Government Areas. Use your positions to unite the people. Do not work in isolation from the Party. Run an all inclusive government. Be humble. Be a servant and not to lord over the people,” he admonished them.
The local government caretaker chairmen in their response promised to commit themselves to the success of the governor’s quest for a clean, healthy and safe state, assuring the RIWAMA boss of full cooperation with the activities of his agency.
They also pledged to domesticate the lofty initiatives of the agency in their various council areas, particularly ensuring that the monthly sanitation exercise was strictly adhered to and the laws complied with accordingly.
They thanked the RIWAMA boss for his attention and appealed to him not to relent on the enormous tasks in taking the state to greater height under the Wike administration.
