Why Gov. Wike Might Be Right In The Fight Against The Exposure Of Bottled/Sachet Water To Sunlight

According to a report by Punch, the Rivers State Government has come out to explain that harmful chemicals are emitted when bottled/sachet water Is exposed to sunlight.

Hon. Tamunosisi Gogo Jaja, who is the commissioner for water resources, had issued the warning at the inauguration of the campaign against exposure of bottled/sachet water to sunlight.

The Commissioner, who was speaking at the event stressed that businessmen and women practicing the habit of leaving water and other plastic-packed products out in the sun or transporting plastic/sachet water in open vans leaving them exposed to sunlight should be aware that such acts can cause skin diseases such as; leukemia, cancer, and an increased mortality rate.

Why Governor Nyesom Wike might be right in the fight against the exposure of bottled/sachet water to sunlight.

The exposure of these bottled/sachet water to sunlight according to the Rivers state government causes skin diseases, leukemia, cancer, and an increased mortality rate. Fighting against it means the Rivers State government, wants nothing but healthy citizens. 

The Rivers State governor as expressed by the Commissioner might be doing the right thing as the flag-off of the campaign against exposure of bottled/sachet water to sunlight has shown his desire to curb the health threat caused by these exposures. 

The governor's call against critical stakeholders, not leaving out the press to actively enlighten the public also shows that he wants to fight for the health of the people of Rivers State.

Wike might be right because he had asked that there should be proper storage of their products away from the sun. The Governor, through his commissioner, had also tasked the people of Rivers State to immediately stop consuming exposed bottled/sachet water.

The Governor's renewed effort in improving water quality in the state means that there would be no cutting corners in the quality of water made available to people of the state.
