Rivers State Government has come out to say that it would apprehend and prosecute residents who indulge in street football and trading during hours of the environmental sanitation exercise.

The Sole Administrator, Rivers State Waste Management Agency (RIWAMA), Bro Felix Obuah recently revealed this as he moved round the state and environs to see the level of stakeholders’ compliance with the monthly sanitation.

According to him, the street trading and footballing that happen during sanitation hours is very wrong and parents should learn to always caution their kids against such habits.

He added that a sanitation exercise is always needed from time to time, so the youths should not do anything to jeopardize it.

His words, “This is not encouraging because in the process of playing football and trading on streets and roads during sanitation hours, such areas are littered with wastes.”

“It is not the best time to play football or any other game for that matter or selling on the streets. If you want to play games or sell, don’t do it during the environmental sanitation hours. Henceforth those found engaging in such acts would be arrested and charged before the Sanitation Court.”

“The overall compliance was good. We passed through Ikwerre Road, Ikokwu, Ojoto, Azikiwe, Emenike, Iloabuchi, D/Line, Rumuomasi, Aba Road and many other streets and roads in Port Harcourt, the State capital.”
