Refuse dumping: Abia to punish offenders

The Abia state government has said the state will develope a legal framework to check dumping of refuse in drainage channels.

The Commissioner for Works, Abia, Chief Bob Ogu stated this in Aba on the sideline of the inauguration of Eziukwu Road, Milverton Road and Ojike Lane on Friday.

According to him, the state will also embark on mass education to sensitise citizens on the hazards of indiscriminate dumping of refuse.

He said that the frequent damages on the roads in the city, which to an extent was partly traceable to blockages of drains as a result of indiscriminate waste dumping by residents, must be stopped to ensure that the roads last.

Ogu said that the roads that Governor Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia inaugurated on Friday were important to Aba because they are connected to the “business heart’’ of the city.

It is for this importance that they are reconstructed using the cement-pavement technology to ensure durability, Ogu added.
