In his avowed determination to sustain the beautification agenda of the state government, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole today ordered the suspension of the Head of Edo State Waste Management Board, just as he directed the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Environment and Public Utilities, Major Lawrence Loye (rtd) to immediately evacuate the refuse at the median along Mission Road, Benin city.
Governor Oshiomhole gave the order during an inspection visit to Mission Road, New Lagos Road and Forestry Road in Benin City.
Governor Oshiomhole expressed displeasure in the median along mission road and said Government will deal with those who want to sabotage his efforts.
He frowned seriously at the indiscriminate parking of vehicles both at Mission Road, and New Benin and directed the commissioner for Transport, Mr. Omo – Ojo Orobosa to tow all vehicles parked in these areas to Government House.
Governor Oshiomhole stopped over at the Board of Internal Revenue where he took a guided tour of facilities at the Board Secretariat.
Some of the departments visited were the ICT department, Tax Audit department, Tax Identification Number (TIN) unit, Board of Internal Revenue Training School otherwise referred to as Sunny Okundia Training Institute.
Addressing the mammoth crowed immediately after his inspection of facilities at the BIRS, Governor Oshiomhole enjoined the people to partner with the State Government in its beautification efforts.
According to him “please tell your parents at home not to dump refuse in the drainage system, and not to shade their wares on the walk-ways”.
“We have to keep Benin City clean so that every Edo person will be proud to invite their friends to Benin City” he maintained.
