Oyo State chapter of Action Democratic Party (ADP) has warned over imminent outbreak of cholera and other diseases that can cause untimely deaths in Ibadan, the state capital.
According to a signed statement by its Director of Publicity, Alhaja Omolola Adiamo, a copy which was obtained by DAILY POST on Monday, revealed that it is high time for Governor Abiola Ajimobi to take charge because the city is under threat of being drowned by mountains of refuse that is taking over the sprawling city.
Adiamo said: “No one in Ibadan can pretend any further that the existing waste disposal system has failed and that the people face the threat of an epidemic outbreak.
“After almost eight years in office, it is ridiculous that the present government lacks the clue on how to keep Ibadan clean.
“We keep wondering why the only refuse disposal vehicles in sight are only the ones purchased by the Otunba Adebayo Alao Akala Administration.
“The Ajimobi Administration should audit the architecture of refuse disposal in Oyo State including available resources and review its refuse disposal model so that it can meet the expectations of the people.
“More importantly, it should take immediate action to prevent an epidemic outbreak and untimely death for the people.
“ADP will also vigorously pursue a Waste-to-Wealth model that will take advantage of the unique waste component of the ancient city.”
