In its quest for efficient service delivery to the people of the State, the Rivers State Waste Management Agency (RIWAMA) has released a Quick Intervention Number to enhance smooth and effective communication with the general public.
The Sole Administrator of the Agency, Bro. Felix Obuah in a statement gave the phone number as 09062030013, adding that the line will be open to the general public 24 hours of the day.
Bro. Obuah advised anyone who observes any heaps of refuse in any part of Port Harcourt, the State capital and its environs to call the number, assuring that such calls would receive immediate and adequate response from the Intervention Unit of the Agency.
The RIWAMA boss said the provision of the quick intervention phone line became necessary to ensure that no refuse is noticed anywhere in Port Harcourt, the state capital and its environs throughout the day and on daily basis too.
“While we still frown at the habit of disposing of wastes after the dumping hours of 6pm to 12 midnight, we request those who see heap(s) of refuse dumped anywhere in Port Harcourt, the State capital and its environs to avail themselves of the Quick Intervention Number and call us regardless of the time of the day”, Bro. Obuah said.
He appealed to members of the public to see the initiative as a civic responsibility, and report the presence of refuse anywhere in the city, for the overall good and cleanliness of the State.
He restated that the business of keeping the State clean and healthy should be everybody's concern and not left to government alone, adding that cleanliness is next to godliness.
