Kaduna Assembly hails NB Plc, others for hygienic Environment

The Kaduna State House of Assembly has lauded the Nigerian Breweries Plc. and few other companies operating in Kaduna for creating hygienic environment around their plants.

Speaking at the Kaduna Assembly Complex Wednesday,  on budget
performance and Oversight functions, the House Committee Chairman on
Environment Honorable Labari Tella representing Jema’a Constituency
maintained that Nigerian Breweries and few companies are
environmentally compliant.

According to the House Committee on Environment, Nigerian Breweries Plc. were outstanding followed by Kaduna Refinery and Petrol Chemical Company (KRPC) and Peugeot Automobile Nigeria.

The House also commended 7UP,  Coca-Cola for also making conscious
effort at improving on their Hygienic levels.

“For oversights, we have gone out to both private companies and
Government agencies. We have gone to KRPC, Nigerian Breweries, PEPSI,
COCA-COLA, PEUGEOT and other places in fact most of these places have
high level environmental compliant especially Nigerian Breweries, KRPC
and Peugeot Automobile. We went there and they took us round, where
they conduct their activities and we made some observations and they
were ready to take corrections but so far so good things are getting
better”. Tella added.

On budget performance, he said “so far so good the level of budget
performance by the Ministry is fair enough even though part of their
responsibility is being handled by Government House. But I hope the
Governor will look at the issues involve and give the ministry full authority to operate”

“Like the woman that is handling refuse evacuation, she had some

challenges at one point because there are areas specifically assigned
to her and the Ministry at several occasions will tell you they are
not the ones handling such areas. But we are trying to see how the whole process can be harmonized but for now she is performing fairly
good because if funds are disburse adequately to her she will even do
more. So we are appealing to government to also pay the three months
outstanding so that she can continue the good job’’
On Erosion and Flood, ‘’The Government has also made provision for
erosion control mechanism in the budget, and adequate monies have been
voted for that, this was why the state Government flagged off the
cleaning of the River banks here in Kaduna and that will also improve
the control of flood because once the River banks are clean there is
free flow of water’’ he added
The House Committee also called on Stakeholders to work strictly to the budget appealing to the State Government to release funds for effective implementation stressing that without a clean environment people will always have health challenges.

“The Government should also provide funds to take care of the local Governments too”.he added.
