“Today’s exercise is a good one, the city is relatively clean. People kept their environment clean and we are very happy. Even the evacuators were all evacuating.

“So, everything went well. I will only encourage the good poeple of Ondo State to sustain the habit of cleanliness to ward off any form of diseases which dirty environment can cause.

“It is how we treat our environment that the environment with treat us. So we must treat our environment well to ensure healthy living.

“It is when we are in good health we can go to work, it is when we are in sound health we can say we want to do this or achieve that. So, let us be hygienic by regularly cleaning our homes and our surroundings. Health is wealth.

“And like I always say, keep your waste in a prescribed bin and wait for the evacuator to evacuate. And I always encourage our evacuators to do the evacuation promptly and effectively so that waste kept in bins will not spill over.

“Also, this is rainy season, it even rained during the exercise and that is why I wore my shower cap. I want to advise the good people of our State not to dump their waste in drainage system and canal because they will be blocked, and this will lead to flooding.

“So, to avert flooding let all of us keep to sanitation rules and regulations”, she stressed.
