Ogun proposes new bills on sanitation


Ogun state  government  is  proposing  bills  seeking the establishment of the environmental  management   fund,  and review of some of the sanitation laws to  attract private sector  investment into the management of environment and  waste in the state.

The  proposed bills also aim  at  boosting the revenue base of the  state  government and improve the budget  performance  in  the  2017 fiscal  year.

The Environment  Commissioner , Bolaji Oyeleye made this known in his office  while receiving the state house of assembly committee on environment  which is assessing the 2016 budget performance of the ministry, the state Environment Protection Agency (OGEPA)  and State Emergency Management Agency(SEMA).

He said the proposed environment fund bill was being fine-tuned by the justice ministry and would soon be presented to the state house of assembly for consideration.

For instance, the Commissioner said the state government wants to sign a memorandum of understanding with Sterling Bank on the kitting of street sweepers and with the etisalat on the designing of road signs on some of the major roads in the state.

Oyeleye said with the proposed new regulations on the management of environment, the ministry would improve on the N70.49 million it generated as at last July,   out of the N300 million revenue projected for the year 2016.
