In another development, the Assembly Committee on Environment has challenged the State Waste Management Authority to improve on its waste disposal service across the state to avert any untoward health implications.
The Committee Chairman, Wahab Haruna , threw the challenge during the ongoing mid-year budget appraisal of Ministries, Departments and Agencies at the assembly complex, Abeokuta.
He stressed the need for the Ministry of Environment to redouble its effort in clearing garbages and refuse which littered some parts of the state to promote safe and healthy environment.
Responding, the Permanent Secretary in the Ministry, Raimi Ojetola, assured the lawmakers of the Ministry’s commitment to improved service.
Ojetola explained that the Waste Management Authority had evolved new business models through effective partnership with private investors to solve the problem of waste management in the state.
