AlAKE Calls For Proper waste Disposal, Lauds GOV. Dopa Abiodun On Infrastructural Development

By Elijah Udofia and Oluwafunso Obasan,

As the rainy season is gradually reaching its peak, the Alake and Paramount ruler of Egbaland, Oba Adedotun Gbadebo, has called on residents to properly dispose their refuse rather than dumping them in the waterways, so as to guide against flooding.

Oba Gbadebo made the call on the sideline of the commissioning of the first phase of 130 housing units at the Prince Court Housing Estate, Kemta, Idi-Aba, Abeokuta, saying dumping of refuse in water channels and drainages could cause havoc affecting lives and property.

“When we have our drainages blocked, this will lead to flooding, which can cause havoc and affect lives and property.

“Any drainage that is constructed, if we do not clean it, silt will settle in it. We see people dumping refuse in the gutters. We have to educate them to know that this is wrong. Refuse should be deposited in a particular place for the refuse collectors to pick them up for proper disposal”, he explained.

Oba Gbadebo who posited that the essence of providing social amenities would be defeated, if they were not properly maintained and protected by the people, added that it would also cost government more to repair or replace such facilities, saying, “Nigerians should ensure proper maintenance of facilities provided by government, corporate organisations, groups and individuals.  Alake lauded the Prince Dapo Abiodun administration for its efforts at making Abeokuta a befitting State capital, saying the Prince Court estate would go a long way at providing decent and affordable accommodation for residents of the State, scoring the government high in housing, health, education, road infrastructure and other sectors
