Rivers State Government Sacks Waste Contractors


Rivers State Government Terminates Contract With Private Waste Contractors Over Non Fulfillment Of Contract Obligation. 

The Rivers  State government has announced the  termination of its contract with all private waste contractors effective from 29 April, 2022.

In a press release signed by Kelvin Ebiri, the special assistant on media to the Rivers State governor, the decision to terminate their contract with the  Rivers State Management Agency (RIWAMA), stems from their inability to fulfill the contractual obligation to ensure  cleaner and healthier environment for Rivers' citizens.

“ In the interim, the Rivers State Government has directed the Chairmen of Port Harcourt City and Obio-Akpor Local Government Areas to immediately take charge of the  evacuation of waste in their respective jurisdiction, pending the announcement of new waste contractors by Monday.

“ In line with its commitment to  ensure a more hygienic environment, the Rivers State Government has hereby  assured residents and indigenes of the state of its resolve to tackle the waste problems in the state in a comprehensive manner.”
