Awka South Local Government Area has flagged off the first ever clean up competition tagged operation KEEP AWKA SOUTH CLEAN (KAC), with Desilt Our Drainages and Save Our Roads; Help Our Governor to Serve us Better, as its theme.
Flagging off the campaign on October 19, the Chairman, Awka South LG Council, Hon Leo Nwuba, noted that the exercise was part of his administration’s strategies to wage war against dirt, as well as restore clean and healthy lifestyle in the area.
He charged all the communities to attach importance to the exercise, and desilt the blocked drainages in their vicinity so as to create room for easy flow of flood water. The LG chairman noted that such easy flow would save the asphalted roads from devastation caused by unhealthy flow of flood.
The clean-up competition took place simultaneously across the nine communities of the LG Council.
According to the LG boss, the prizes attached to the competition were 1st prize – N200, 000; 2nd prize – N100, 000 and 3rd prize – N50, 000.
Nwuba enjoined all communities to do their best, grab the prize and enjoy healthy life.
