Jigawa lawmaker engages 20 environmental workers
Alhaji Kais Abdallah, a member of the Jigawa State House of Assembly, said on Monday that he had engaged 20 ad-hoc environmental workers to enhance sanitation in Malammadori town.
Abdallah (APC-Malammadori Constituency), stated this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Malammadori.
He said the workers were engaged in collaboration with the local government council and deployed to various locations in the town.
The legislator said that the gesture was to enhance environmental and sanitation services as well as provide job opportunities to the teaming unemployed youths.
“This is to complement the efforts of the council to keep the town clean and protect the environment,’’ he said.
According to him, the state government planned to construct drains and township roads in Malammadori, adding that it was captured in the 2016 budget.
It will be recalled that the Malammadori Local Government Council had deployed about 50 environmental workers and 20 sanitation officers to major towns in the area.
The workers were engaged in street, drains and waste clearance, while the sanitation personnel were mandated to inspect residential homes and eateries to ensure that they conform to best sanitation standards.
