• Restates commitment to clean, healthy environment

Thousands of waste managers in Lagos and South-West states, yesterday, declared their support for the presidential candidate of All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu and re-election of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu for second term.

The waste managers, under the aegis of the Association of Waste Managers of Nigeria (AWAMN), who gave the declaration at the Mobolaji Johnson Arena, formerly known as Onikan Stadium, vowed to mobilise members for door-to-door campaign for Tinubu and Sanwo-Olu.

National President, AWAMN, David Oriyomi, said Tinubu brought in the PSPs in 1999 when he was governor of Lagos State in a bid to tackle waste problems of the state.

Earlier, Sanwo-Olu, who made a brief appearance at the event, pledged to increase the salaries of waste managers.

The governor said his government is committed to the welfare of those ensuring cleaner city and secured environment, adding that he would remain committed to ensuring a clean and healthy environment.

He implored them to vote massively for Tinubu, himself and other APC candidates for various positions.

In his remarks, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, LAWMA, Ibrahim Odumboni, said what has become AWAMN today had its foundation solidly laid by Tinubu many years ago.
