Ogun To Pay Special Attention To Aged, Physically Challenged In Waste Mgt

Ogun State government has said it will give special attention to the aged and physically-challenged in it’s waste management services in the State.

The State governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun, stated this during a meeting with Waste Private Sector Participants (PSP) Waste Managers and Vendors at the Valley-View Auditorium, Isale-Igbein, Abeokuta, today.

Th Governor who was represented by his Special Adviser on Environment and Chief Executive Officer of the Ogun State Waste Management Authority (OGWAMA), Mr Ola Oresanya, said the aged deserved the special attention and services in appreciation of their invaluable contributions to the development of state during their active years, while the physical challenged rather been burdened should been shown care through the special waste management services.

He therefore directed the Waste PSP to  forward the names and addresses of the these categories of residents in their area of operations to the State government through the OGWAMA for the proper implementation of the special services.

Governor Abiodun also used the opportunity of the meeting to charge the PSP and the Waste Managers on the need to keep the State clean during the forthcoming festive period through special operations. Adding that “just like the government, they have social contract with the people by collecting the wastes regularly for proper disposal”.

The governor equally urge residents on the need to stop dumping refuse on roadsides and medians, saying that Ogun State is known for “cleanliness and will spare no efforts at maintaining that standard”.
