Kano government warns industries on cleanliness of host communities


Kano government has warned industries operating in the state to ensure cleanliness in the communities where they operate.

The Commissioner for Environment, Dr. Ali Makoda, gave the warning in Kano while monitoring the monthly environmental sanitation for Motor parks, markets and work places.

Makoda, represented by the Permanent Secretary in the Ministry, Mr. Aliyu Garo, said many industries failed to consider health of the people living in the communities they operate from.

“Today, we inspected some industries in Sharada, where we received public complaints on bad odour from the company.

We earlier sent our staff to check the situation and they proffered solution to the company and we are happy to state that the company has complied,” he said.

Garo also commended the three industries visited by the state sanitation committee for their “clean working environment.“

The committee has visited Salsar Enterprises, Myer Bottled Water Company as well as B and B Leather Ltd. as part of the monthly sanitation inspection.
