Hoping to restore the once aesthetic beauty of Malamre in Karewa ward of Yola the Adamawa State capital, where Governor Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri’s personal residence is located, the Councillor of the ward Hon. Micheal Okopi has re-introduce the Saturday weekly sanitation exercise.
Environmental and health issues have been a major challenge in the vicinity, following indiscriminate dumping of refuse.
But the Councillor, who disclosed this during the clean up on Saturday, noted with dismay that cleanup and sanitation exercise was not conducted over the years.
He stressed that he decided to reintroduce the weekly Saturday sanitation exercise to keep the environment clean and tidy.
“In our determination to keep the environment clean at all times, we have decided to re-introduce the weekly sanitation exercise” mentioned.
Okopi was also appreciative of the people of the community for coming out in large numbers to support the exercise.
While urging residents and traders in the area to sustain the sanitation and cleanup exercise, he advised them to always keep their environments clean to be healthy.
The young politician while restated his commitment to execute good policies and programmes that would affect the lives of the people positively, urged the people to change their attitudes to environmental cleanliness.
