Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike, has relieved the State Commissioner of Works, Mr Bathuel Harrison, of his appointment with immediate effect.
In a statement signed by the Special Assistant on Media, Simeon Nwakudu, he said the former Commissioner has been directed to hand over to the Permanent Secretary in the ministry.
Meanwhile, this month’s sanitation exercise will hold on Saturday, June 24, 2017, across the various local government areas of the state.
As usual, human and vehicular movements will be restricted during the period of the sanitation exercise from 7am–10am.
Bro Felix Obuah, who announced the sanitation exercise in a statement in Port Harcourt, called on all residents of the state capital to fully participate in the exercise holding across the 23 local government areas of the state.
Bro Obuah called on security agencies to effectively enforce the restriction of movement order between the stipulated hours of 7am to 10am, except those on essential duties, who are also advised to collect Exemption Permit from the Agency.
The RIWAMA Sole Administrator urged owners of trucks (individuals and cooperate organisations) to make available their trucks for the evacuation of waste that would be generated as a result of the sanitation exercise.
