“Perpetrators of bunkering acts that is causing soot in our State have been warned to desist from this, otherwise, the law will take its cause. I want to assure all Bayelsans that the relevant security agencies would be taking appropriate actions against those who are involved in destroying our environment through illegal oil bunkering and other activities.
Again, you know there is a law banning the use of motorcycles in the State capital. Council has therefore decided that members of the public who are violating this law be warned to respect the law, and where they fail to do so, the law will be duly enforced, and their motorcycles will be impounded and confiscated by government.
Also, you all recall that during the COVID era, we ensured all these scrap yards around Yenagoa, were pulled down, but as we speak, they are emerging again, and government has warned that we will no longer tolerate these scraps in our environment. Therefore, council directed the environmental sanitation authority as well as the Physical Planning and Development Board to immediately swing into action and ensure that all those scrap yards that are reemerging in and around Yenagoa are immediately removed, and of course, those who continue to violate the environmental sanitation laws of Bayelsa State will be arrested and prosecuted
