Gov. Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State has pledged to create enabling environment for potential development partners and investors to invest in the state.
He begged staff of the waste management authority to make effective use of the items donated.
“Street cleaning and waste collection is a regular activity. Failure to observe basic sanitation principles often result in devastation to the point of causing epidemic or grievous health challenge.
“I, therefore, implore you to be more dedicated and committed to your job. To our good people in the Sunshine State, ensuring a hygienic environment for a healthy living is the responsibility of all.
“We are all expected to play our part by avoiding indiscriminate dumping of refuse and ensuring high regard for decency and obedience of sanitation laws.
“The environment is a jealous believer in the principle of reciprocity. When we are hostile to our environment, it will deliberately respond in good measure.
“Waste generation and disposal should, therefore, form part of our new learning for safe and healthy living,” the governor said.
