Oyo Govt. Parts Ways with Waste Management Company
Oyo State Government has revoked its contractual agreement with West Africa Energy, due to breach of the contractual terms.
The Commissioner for Environment and Natural Resources, Mr. Kehinde Ayoola said the company has failed in its performance under the contract it signed with Oyo State Government, which is significant enough for the state to terminate the contract.
The Commissioner cited instances where the state capital, Ibadan, has experienced unbearable heaps of refuse in the last four weeks, saying the company has not lived up to expectation in cleaning the city.
Mr. Ayoola said, being the main employer of the contractor, Oyo State Government has deemed it fit to relieve West Africa Energy of its duties, so as to ensure efficient waste management in the state.
He assured residents that the state government was taking holistic measures to ensure the state experiences a turn-around in the environmental sector, as well as, creating wealth from waste.
