Abuja sets committee to control ram sales

Abuja Environment Protection Board (AEPB) has inaugurated Rams Sale Control Committee to identify various spots being used for the sale of rams and ensure cleanliness of those areas before and after Eid-el-kabir.


AEPB Head of Information and Outreach Programme Unit, Muktar Ibrahim, said that the inauguration of the committee was imperative as the festive activities would aid the increase in waste generation in the Federal Capital City.

“We have 27 cleaning contractors, who will increase their activities as festive activities will get into full gear, and essentially we are not leaving any stone unturned to ensure cleanliness of the city,’’ he said.


The information officer added that staff of AEPB would also be on ground during the celebration to ensure all round monitoring of the city and supervision of the cleaning by contractors to ensure dirt-free environment.
