LG embarks on ‘Operation Clean Oshodi’
By Edith Igbokwe
To ensure clean, healthy and sustainable environment for Oshodi-Isolo Local Government in 2019, the Head of Environment Department (HOD), Akeem Omolaja Adeoye, has disclosed plans to ensure the success of the proposed ‘Operation Clean Oshodi’ agenda.
Noting that arrangement has been made with the Private Sector Partnership (PSP) operators to get Oshodi clean, he said that the LG would complement the effort of the PSP with its trucks to make the whole exercise worthwhile.
According to him, as environmental officials, his department is responsible for waste management, market sanitation exercise, house inspections, food control, vector control and removal of corpses from the streets.
He noted that the department has created a working plan to address issues emanating from these units.
Adeoye revealed that a level 15 officer has been assigned to give reports on refuse situation within Oshodi to ensure that people patronize PSP operators as well as reporting defaulters for necessary action during his course of monitoring.
