Hon Bankole who condemned attitude of dumping of refuse by some of the residents which he said was the major cause of blockages in drainages, said the drainages were constructed to pave way for water flow especially during the rainfall, imploring them to support government in promoting an hygienic and conductive environment.

During raining season people suffered a lot on our road because of nonchalant attitude of residents on our water ways, but we want to thank the government for the quick intervention through the Ogun State Public Works Agency (OGPWA).

We don’t want the residents to drop refuse in the drainages, rather they should cultivate the habit of dumping wastes appropriately”, Bankole said

Hon Bankole disclosed that the Local Government Environmental Marshall Task Force would be moving round from time to time to apprehend offenders and would be made to face the wrath of the law.

Also speaking, the Iyaloja of Yewa Land, Alhaja Yemisi Abass assured the government of the Traders support for doing the needful in promoting clean environment
