The fear of the Rivers State Task Force on Sanitation or its counterpart, the Task Force on Traffic, is the beginning of wisdom on the streets of Port Harcourt.

Now, the task force on Sanitation has been dissolved, just as the one of Traffic has been scrapped.

Traders and roadside sellers and hawkers seem to fear the task force on Sanitation to no end.

No day passed without woes and wails of traders being crushed and goods or wares impounded.

Now the Rivers State Governor, Sir Siminalayi Fubara, has announced the dissolution of the State Task Force on Sanitation.

Governor Fubara, according to Nelson Chukwudi, the governor’s Chief Press Secretary, announced the dissolution during a meeting with the State Task Force on Sanitation and refuse contractors in Government House, Port Harcourt on Tuesday.

 The State Chief Executive said that the task force ceased to exist with immediate effect. 

He directed the Special Adviser on Environmental Sanitation, Prince Obi Ohia, to take charge of the agency until government takes a decision on the leadership of the Rivers State Waste Management Agency (RIWAMA).
