Nasarawa State Government has commended the role being played by Traditional Rulers in the state in showing active participation in ensuring the cleanliness of the state during the monthly sanitation exercise.

The State Commissioner of Environmental and Natural Resources, Hon. Yakubu Kwanta, who made government feelings known on Saturday, expressed delight that the Emir of Lafia and Chairman Nasarawa State Traditional Council, Justice Sidi Bage, personally went around to ensure strict compliance with the exercise by his people.

He said the Emir’s gesture served as a morale booster as well as encouragement in ensuring full participation in the cleanliness by the people.

While expressing satisfaction with the level of compliance during the exercise, Hon. Kwanta however, said that one cannot rule out a certain percentage of some people who did not participate in the general cleanliness.

The Commissioner said he has contacted the leadership of commercial motorcycles, Keke Napep riders, among others on the need to educate their members to ensure full compliance during the monthly sanitation.

He warned that violation of the exercise comes with stiff penalties of fines. He therefore advised the people of the state to adhere strictly by keeping their environments clean at all times.
