Cholera outbreak in Nigeria: Osun govt warns residents against dirty environment

As part of measures to forestall cholera outbreak in Osun, the State government through the Ministry of Environment and Sanitation is putting everything in place so as not to record any incidence in the state, warns residents against dirty environment.

The Commissioner for Environment and Sanitation, Mayowa Adejoorin led other government officials of the ministry to visit Afonta, rasco area, in Osogbo where we have some Fulanis and Hausas who reside there.

The Commissioner who registered his displeasure with the way residents littered the environment with refuse, noting that if this should continue, they will see the other side of the government.

He, however, charged the residents to take responsibility by making sure they clean their environment always and they should also desist from dumping refuse indiscriminately, adding that anyone caught doing such will be dealt with according to the provisions of the law.

Leading the Environmental Marshals of the ministry to clean the environment, the Director of Environmental Health and Sanitation, Wale Akala said it is important that citizens to play their roles in making sure they clean their environment always.

Speaking with the Hausa community, Mr Akala noted that where they live is very dirty and that was the reason the ministry has to come and do the sanitation as he urged them to keep the environment neat at all times.

“To be honest with you, your environment is very dirty and I am not happy about it. People living here are prone to different types of sicknesses and this may be inimical to our existence in the state.

“The Governor we have loves people to be neat. Please, what we have done here today, keep it up, tell your people to always keep their environment neat. I will be coming here time to time to check the environment.

The director also sounds note of warning to those who are found dumping refuse indiscriminately to desist, he opined “Let me say it loud and clear, for those of us who are in habit of dumping refuse anywhere, it’s forbidden, we have PSP operators who come to our streets to pick this refuse, let’s patronise them for our own sake. Anywone caught in this act will be dealt with.

“Today is Sunday, when those who are Christians should be in their various churches, here we are cleaning the environment just to make sure we have healthy environment.

“Already, we have cholera outbreak in Lagos, Ondo, Kwara and many other states and we don’t want such in Osun hence why we are all out this morning to make sure we visit and clean dirty areas in Osogbo and its environs.

Residents of the environment were so happy over the gesture as they trooped out in their numbers to pray for Governor Adeleke and promised their unalloyed support for his administration.
