Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Nyesom Wike, has reintroduce monthly sanitation as part of strategies to keep the city clean.
Wike stated this in Abuja on Monday, August 28, after a closed-door meeting with the contractors handling various projects in the city.
The former Rivers governor disclosed that he had already briefed President Bola Ahmed Tinubu on the idea that at least two Saturdays in a month would be declared for sanitation from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m.
He stressed that the move would enable companies supporting the FCT with logistics to go to market and other public places to evacuate refuse.
“We must all make sacrifices. There is nothing like we are going to suffer. You also contribute to refuse.
“So, if you spare three hours on a Saturday at home to clear the refuse and bring them out for us to evacuate and dispose of, then that is the little way you can help.
“We are appealing to you (residents) to cooperate with us so we can achieve our goals,” he said.
On streetlights, Wike admitted that there were some improvements while promising that everywhere in Abuja would be lit up.
