The Kwara State Internal Revenue Service (KWIRS) has commenced sensitization campaign on how to make Kwara roads and environment clean. The Executive Chairman of KWIRS, Dr. Muritala Awodun, who led KWIRS team today during the monthly sanitation exercise, said the awareness campaign became imperative as the change that everyone was clamouring for cannot be achieved by folding our arms.
Dr. Awodun said the sensitization campaign was informed by the need to make Kwara tidy, adding that the clearing of drainage is to allow for free flow of water and avoid blockages. According to him, the patching of potholes which began with Tanke-University of Ilorin road would soon be extended to other axis like Asa Dam road, Sango and many others.
The exercise, he said, will serve as a temporary measure of making our roads to last long. Dr. Awodun said plans have been completed to purchase 40 tricycles that would be clearing waste on a daily basis. He disclosed that nylon where the waste will be packed will also be distributed to each household. The Ministries of Environment and Works had earlier been briefed and in full support of the agency’s gesture.
