The general manager said that the state government was working conscientiously to clear the refuse and ensure that the people of the state lived in clean and hygienic environment.
He said that henceforth, anyone caught dumping refuse indiscriminately would be arrested.
Osasona urged the people of the state to support the administration by keeping their environment clean to prevent an outbreak of disease.
