Governor Chukwuma Soludo of Anambra says his administration has engaged the services of 31 contractors to keep the state clean.

Mr Soludo made the disclosure in a statement signed by Christian Aburime, his Press Secretary in Awka on Saturday.

The governor directed that there should be comprehensive sanitation in all the 21 Local Government Areas of the state.

He said the exercise was part of his administration’s determination to ensure a hygienic and healthy environment as well as the wellness of residents.

He said his administration would continue to sensitise people on the need to keep to their social responsibilities adding that “cleanliness is next to godliness”.

The governor said that, in the coming days, his administration’s urban renewal plans would be achieved in line with global best practices.

“31 contractors have been engaged in Anambra to help keep the state clean. Traders in markets need to bag their waste and dispose of them in designated areas.

“Those who trade on the roads, should desist from it and go into the markets,” he stated.
