RIWAMA Sole Administrator appeals to service providers to step up action to reduce spread of virus


The Sole Administrator of the Rivers State Waste Management Agency (RIWAMA), Felix Obuah, says the Agency is challenged by the circumstance of the period more than ever to step up action and has ordered that the Service Providers rise up to the demand.

Obuah noted that being in forefront of the relentless efforts of the State governor, Nyesom Wike, to ensure that the checkmate of the coronavirus pandemic is watertight, all Service Providers must work round the clock to rid all nooks and crannies of the State of any refuse dump.

He said for no reason will any Service Provider be found wanting this time, stressing that the sit-at-home and or curfew order by the state government exempts all workers on essential duties including the Service Providers and their workers.

The RIWAMA boss reminded Service Providers of the high need of their services this time, and urged them to ensure that their drivers and workers wear protective gears.
