The directive is for ASWAMA officials to monitor all the local government and give feedback to the governor.

The Mayor urged the committee members to mobilize people from different wards to come out and participate in the environmental sanitation exercise scheduled for tomorrow, Saturday, 27th August, 2022, saying, “let’s mobilize our people and make sure that the environmental exercise is successful on that day.
