End of Indiscriminate Dumping of Refuse & Blockage of Waterways by the Solid Waste is Over in Sokoto

End of Indiscriminate Dumping of Refuse & Blockage of Waterways by the Solid Waste is Over in Sokoto.

It has been clearly understand by everyone in the state that residents usually dump their waste in gutters, and this clogs the gutters and prevents the proper flow of water, causing the gutters to overflow and resulted into what is term as 'Flooding'.

It is therefore learnts that a drainage system requires constant maintenance, especially during the rainy season so as to not give a room to any form of waterways blockage in the state.

In many parts of Nigeria today, there is a great need for properly managed sustainable drainage system in order to help manage surface water runoff. 

Indeed, it is common to see flooded streets with litter floating everywhere after a short period of rainfall. Such situations create very unsanitary conditions for residents of the neighborhoods and contribute to the degradation of the environment.

With the present administration on power, led by Governor of the State, Rt. Honourable Aminu Waziri Tambuwal (Matawallen Sokoto), Sokoto State is almost saying 'bye' to all such of indiscriminate dumping of refuse.

Also, deliberate throwing of of solid waste (such as sand, and any other form of refuse into our gutters by the residents) through the active ministry of environment Sokoto, under the watch of the Honourable Commissioner of the Ministry of Environment, Alhaji Sagir Attahiru Bafarawa.

Look at how our drainages look after the recent removal of solid waste from our waterways at Bauchi Road and Diori Hammani Road among others.
