Easter Celebration: OGWAMA Counsels Ogun Residents On Cleanliness

As the world marks the crucification and resurrection of Jesus Christ this Easter period, the Ogun State Waste Management Authority (OGWAMA) has advised residents of the State on the need to make cleanliness their watchword during and after the celebration.

Mr. Ola Oresanya, a Special Adviser to the Governor on Environment and OGWAMA’s Chief Executive Officer, gave the advice, as residents of the State join the rest of the world to celebrate the yearly festivity with its  expected increase in waste generation due to the celebration.

Oresanya, while thanking residents for their cooperation and conformity with the new waste management reforms introduced by the present administration, urged them to continue to display high level of cleanliness as the state is now wearing a new look.

A statement issued by the spokesperson of the agency, Mr. Rotimi Oduniyi, stated that as customary, the OGWAMA boss reminded the residents of the need to give their generated wastes during the festivity to the Private Sector Participant (PSP) assigned to their communities or drop them at government approved waste collection points for proper disposal.

Oresanya also charged motorists plying the Ogun state corridor to be mindful of the safety of OGWAMA’s sweepers and workers that will be on duty tidying roads and other public utilities by driving cautiously.

While wishing all the residents of the State an eventful Easter celebration, the Chief Executive Officer of OGWAMA, assured that all the authority’s staff will be on duty throughout the festive period to ensure that all the gains recorded in the past month are sustained for a cleaner Ogun State.
