Abia state Government says, it is ever working towards restoring the beauty of the Abia Tower and areas around it.
The state commissioner for Environment, Aham Uko disclosed this over the weekend during the October edition of the state cleanup exercise he monitored, stating that it is collaborating with the Abia State Environmental Sanitation Authority, ASEPA in that regard.
He disclosed that the state will ensure that public light supply from the Onhiya 33 KVA sub-station will be tapped into to illuminate the area, especially during the yuletide, warning people who deface the edifice indiscriminately with posters that if caught, will be subjected to the law.
He also disclosed a partnership agreement with a contractor to clear the dump site along the Ubakala- Aba expressway through pulling down the wall they erected at the site and pushing the refuse further into the site, while the state government will be embarking on efforts to remediate all erosion spots/locations in the state.
The commissioner expressed his happiness that people are now coming out to participate in the exercise, but advised drivers coming into the state from other states to observe the exercise especially while passing through the city center.
