Nasarawa Introduces Mobile Courts For Environment Law Offenders

By Godwin Ojoshimite

The Nasarawa State government is set to introduce mobile court that would prosecute defaulters of waste disposal regulations.

The state governor, Umaru Tanko Al-Makura, disclosed this through a press statement signed by his senior special assistant on media and press affairs, Sani Mairiga.

He said the mobile court would also prosecute those found guilty of parking vehicles by the road side thereby hindering free flow of traffic.

Al-Makura, therefore, warned citizens residing in urban areas, particularly along Keffi- Abuja dual carriage way and Lafia metropolis, to desist from any acts that would constitute environmental hazards, stressing that “a clean environment produces healthy people and health is wealth”.

The statement further urged residents to ensure that they dump their refuse only at designated points to aid easy evacuation by men of the Nasarawa State Urban Development Board, NUDB.
