Mr Tunde Famuyisan, Head, Environment Department in Ikole Area Council, Ekiti, said on Friday that the council has begun enforcement of sanitation laws hitherto stalled by the Judiciary Staff Union’s (JUSUN) strike.
Famusiyan disclosed this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in Ikole-Ekiti.
He said the department had suspended the sanitation exercise because they were handicapped in prosecuting violators during the period of JUSUN strike.
The sanitation officer said that with JUSUN calling off its strike, the council would also resume the sanitation exercise.
He warned residents of the area to obey sanitation laws or be ready to face the consequences..
Famusiyan said sanitary officials had carried out enough sensitisation, during the strike period, on the essence of hygienic environment.
He said sanitary officers would from Monday move from street to street, inspecting residential areas to ensure that people imbibe good environmental sanitation habits.
NAN recalls that Mr Niyi Ogundare, chairman of the state chapter of JUSUN, had on Wednesday announced the suspension of the seven months old strike, after a meeting with the state government.
