Ogun waste management programme ‘ll be private-sector driven- Abiodun


Bankole Taiwo, Abeokuta

Ogun state governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun has revealed that his administration’s waste management programme would be private-sector driven for optimum performance.

Prince Dapo Abiodun stated this at the donation of 100 branded waste drums to the newly-established Ogun state Waste Management Authority OGWAMA by DeTopNotch Service Limited as part of the company’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) in Mowe, Obafemi-Owode Local Government Area of the state.

Gov. Abiodun represented by his Special Adviser on Environment and Chief Executive Officer of the Ogun State Waste Management Authority (OGWAMA), Mr Ola Oresanya said the state government took the decision to make it’s waste management program to be private-sector driven so as to provide more employment opportunities for thousands of youths and women in the society.

He has therefore called on private-sector participants in the sector to make good use of the government program to invest  in the sector, adding that as the custodian of the environment, the administration will make sure that the sector is well structured to support their investment for maximum expansion, economic yield, and employment opportunities.

While thanking DeTopNotch Resource Limited for it’s donation to the state government which will be deployed to make the state cleaner, Abiodun urged other Private Sector Participants (PSPs) in the waste management sector to emulate the DeTopNotch by contributing their quota to the government’s efforts at making the state one of the cleanest states in the country.

Earlier, the Managing Director of DeTopNotch Resources Limited, Barrister David Ayo-Odugbesan said the donation of the drums was part of the company’s ways of ploughing back into the society calling on residents of the state to support government’s efforts at making the state clean through it’s waste management programme.
