The Sole Administrator, Rivers State Waste Management Agency, Bro Felix Obuah has commenced payment of 4 months debts owed Service Providers of the Agency by the outgone Rotimi Amaechi administration.
Service Providers of the Rivers State Waste Management Agency were engaged by the past administration but were owed for months.
Obuah while addressing the contractors appealed to Rivers people to exercise patience with the Agency in its concerted efforts to clear the city of Port Harcourt and Rivers State of garbage inherited from the past administration.
The Sole Administrator regretted that Amaechi refused to pay Service Providers, including Road Sweepers, which resulted in garbage being littered all over the State and inherited on May 29, 2015, when Barr Nyesom Wike took over government of Rivers State.
“I appeal to Rivers people to have patience with us. I inherited debt of over N1billion. Amaechi refused to pay Service Providers for 4 months. We are working to ensure that all garbage you see littered on the streets and roads in Port Harcourt, the State capital are removed.”
“It will take some time. But we must get there. We must restore, Port Harcourt, the State capital, to its garden city status”.
