Kano State Introduces Monthly Sanitation on Sunday

Kano extends monthly sanitation to Sundays

By NAN on June 27, 2015

The Kano State Government on Saturday announced the extension of its monthly environmental sanitation to Sunday.
The state Commissioner for Environment, Dr Ali Makoda, disclosed this to journalists on Saturday, shortly after monitoring exercise for the month of June.

Makoda said the population of Kano, in addition to the rainy season, made it necessary for the extension to enable people to properly clean their surroundings and drainage.

The commissioner commended the people of the state for their level of compliance during the exercise and implored them to continue with the attitude.

He, however, restated the new administration’s desire to ensure a cleaner and a healthier environment, adding that this would only be achieved with the support of the citizenry.

He said his ministry would liaise with some local government councils on how to improve sanitation in their areas.

The commissioner visited all the metropolitan Local Government Areas in Kano, including Ungogo Local government Area.
NAN reports that there was no arrest with regards to non- compliance to exercise for the month of June

Election: Nothing Went Wrong

The Presidential election has been concluded and a number of Christians are wondering what happened.

First, there is no cause for despair or hopelessness. I think that what God has primarily achieved is to avert bloodshed and violence all over the nation, particularly in the northern parts of the country. For that, we should be grateful. Before the election, many of the brethren were seeing visions and dreams of corpses, mayhem, and violence all over the nation.
