Deputy Governor of Ekiti State, Otunba Bisi Egbeyemi has expressed disappointment that some residents were drinking local gin known as “ogogoro” at motor parks in some locations where he monitored the environmental sanitation exercise.

Egbeyemi who personally caught the defaulting residents on Saturday, 26, 2019, stressed that drinking ogogoro at joints, loitering about, carrying out commercial activities during the sanitation hours constituted environmental offences, punishable under law.

In a statement by his Special Assistant (Media) Odunayo Ogunmola, Egbeyemi said he would not relent in enforcing environmental sanitation law to ensure clean environment and prevent outbreak of epidemic. He said:

“The people demonstrated compliance enough but those at the motor parks were found taking Ogogoro, but the women were at work without force.

“Drinking ogogoro at the motor park during sanitation hours is against the law and will never be tolerated. Complying with the sanitation law is in the interest of our people.

“The people here in Okemesi complied, they are law abiding people, you can see their gutters are clean.”

Egbeyemi charged Ekiti residents and other Nigerians passing through the state to always comply with the restriction of human and vehicular movement on sanitation days.

The Deputy Governor also warned against dumping of refuse in the drains which he said can impede the flow of water and precipitate flooding capable of wreaking havoc on residents.

Egbeyemi has charged motor park officials to comply with the rules and regulations guiding environmental sanitation exercise in the State.

The Deputy Governor, who commended the people of Okemesi for sanitizing their environment, expressed satisfaction in their level of compliance.
