The removal of the ASEPA GM was coming barely two days after the Abia State House of Assembly had on Wednesday, at its plenary, bemoaned the indiscriminate dumping of refuse in some areas of the state.

 

The Abia Assembly leadership also regretted that the streets and roads in Umuahia, the state capital, and Aba have been taken over by refuse, emphasising that the former had become an eyesore, which made him have an interface with the General Manager of Abia State Environmental Protection Agency (ASEPA).



This followed a presentation of a matter of urgent public importance by the member representing Umuahia North State Constituency and the House Committee Chairman on Environment, Hon Kelechi Onuzuruike.

The State House of Assembly further resolved to summon the ASEPA General Manager through its committee on Environment.

 

It equally directed the Assembly leadership to report back to the house on the summon on 13th of December, 2021.

 

However, according to the release over Okwulehie’s immediate removal, Governor Ikpeazu further directed the SSG, Chris Ezem to oversee the activities of the State Environmental agency in interim capacity.
