Oyo Govt Seals Premier Hotel, Event Centre, Others For Violating Environmental Laws

2 min read

The Oyo State Government yesterday, sealed Premier Hotel, Mokola Hill and an event centre located at Eleiyele in Ibadan, for violating the environmental sanitation laws of the state.

The state’s Commissioner for Ministry of the Environment and Natural Resources, Mr. Abiodun Oni, who led the enforcement team, reiterated that the need to seal up the facilities became necessary to put an end to environmental nuisance in the state.

The commissioner, who was appalled at the attitude of the management of the hotel for accumulating heaps of wastes within their premises, wondered why the management failed to co-operate with the designated authorised waste collector despite the seven-day ultimatum given to them to evacuate their wastes.

Similarly, over 80 shops were sealed at Sango market for non-compliance with environmental sanitation laws, which include indiscriminate dumping of wastes on the road median, and others.

However, the team also went to Gbaremu market and Adelabu Complex at Challenge to sensitise the traders on the importance of having a clean, safe and healthy environment, while also giving them stern warning to comply with the environmental sanitation laws.
