In a bid to maintain a healthy living amongst citizens and residents of the State, the Chairman, Akwa Ibom State Environmental Protection and Waste Management Agency (AKSEPWMA) – Hon Prince Ikim, has charged the newly appointed Resource persons and reappointed companies working under the agency to raise their games in the task of keeping Akwa Ibom State Clean, green and beautiful.
Hon Ikim gave the Charge on Wednesday, September 11, 2018 at the AKSEPWMA office, new park road, Itam, during a reorientation session organized for the recently appointed resource persons.
In his remarks, Ikim who congratulated all returning and new resource persons for getting the highly competitive jobs, admonished them to appreciate the confidence reposed on them, by delivering their jobs in accordance with the intentional best practices.
“I congratulate you on your new appointment and Charge you to reciprocate the Governor’s magnanimity by working diligently to ensure that Akwa Ibom State retains her position as the cleanest State in Nigeria. That position does not mean that we have arrived; the reward for any good work is more work, so we must raise our game to ensure that we are not overtaken by any other State. Asides that, clean environment is the major prerequisite for healthy living, so all hands must be on deck to ensure that Akwa Ibom State is clean” Ikim added.
The most media friendly board Chairman while assuring a good working relationship between the Agency and resource persons, stressed that all Waste evacuators must always dress properly with emphasis on hand gloves. He insisted that everyone sweeping the streets must always wear their complete kits for their safety, adding that all resources companies must have their names crested on the coverall and reflectors used on duty, for easy identification and sanctions, where need be. Ikim warned the companies to ensure that all remunerations due to field workers are always paid and on time.
