Osun State Government has reacted to a report credited to an International non-governmental Organization, Clean-Up Nigeria which rated Osun as one of the dirtiest states in Nigeria.
The state faulted the claim saying Osun remains one of the cleanest state in Nigeria.
CityMirrorNews recalls that the
Clean-Up Nigeria, an international non-governmental organisation had rated Osun , Borno and Kogi , the most dirtiest states in Nigeria.
According to the international non-governmental Organization, with cleanliness performance index ratings of 12 per cent, 13 per cent and 14 per cent for Borno, Osun and Kogi respectively, the states emerged as the top three dirtiest in Nigeria.
The Special Adviser to Governor Gboyega Oyetola on Environment and Sanitation, Hon Rufus Oyegbile while reacting to the report in an interview with Journalists, on Monday, described the claim of the NGO as a ruse and barbaric saying it was a delibrate attempt to rubbish the good work of the performing Governor.
Oyegbile said “it is callous and disheartened for a group not knowing to us with no defined criteria, to declare a State that has gotten several awards on cleanliness and sanitation as one of the dirtiest states in this country.
“I wonder what the NGO who has no website address and online profile, a masquerade, could be saying about the state of Omoluabi. This is insane. He said.
“With all sense of responsibility, Osun remains one of the cleanest state in Nigeria. The state capital and major cities in the state are kept clean everyday by over 500 sweepers, about 1000parkers, and 60 psp operators.
“Over 31large trucks and 43 small trucks pack over 1000tonnes of waste to our various dumpsites daily for effective management.
“How could some unscrupulous elements gathered together to tannish the good work of an action Governor? It’s barbaric.”
“I hereby reject such write up and warn the so called NGO to desist from such act. I thank you.”
