The Adamawa State government has warned residents of the state to stop building on waterways and indiscriminate dumping of refuse in drainages as a strategy to overcome the yearly perennial flooding in the state.

Chief of staff to the governor, Mr Edgar Amos, gave the warning yesterday while inspecting the sanitation exercise reintroduced in the state.

Amos noted that government would not take it lightly, especially with those erecting structures blocking waterways, which divert rainwater into people’s houses and causing outbreaks of diseases.

He said the government has constituted a mobile court to ensure that violators of the exercise are punished according to the sanitation law of the state.

“Going forward, government would increase the level of awareness so that people would understand the importance of a clean environment.

“Government has already constituted a mobile court to ensure that violators of the exercise are punished”, he said.

Also, the commissioner for the Environment, Mohammed Sadiq, thanked the state government for the reintroduction of the sanitation exercise in the state.

Some commissioners and other top government functionaries monitored the exercise.
