Determined to ensure that Owerri Capital city returns back to her former glory as the cleanest city in Nigeria, the Special Adviser to the Governor on Sanitation and General Manager of ENTRACO, Hon. MacDonald Ebere has led an aggressive war against shanties and street trading within the capital city of Owerri.
The affected places so far visited are World Bank, Control, PH road, Onitsha road, and Green Verges along Emmanuel College roundabout.
The exercise which was monitored by the pragmatic GM has continued to receive overwhelming applause from the residents and visitors to the state.
Addressing the media, the GM ENTRACO Hon. MacDonald Ebere who was accompanied by other top management declared that he would not rest until the state capital city wears a benefiting look that will enable investors to invest in the state.
According to the visionary and articulate youthful General Manager who explained that the Governor has displayed genuine interest to develop and attract investors to state by reaching out to critical stakeholders and institutions across the nation and beyond, however noted that no real investor can invest in an unorganized environment.
He said that street traders have filled up the entire gutters and drainages within the capital city with all manner of refuse while lamenting that shanties have defaced the original master plan of the capital.
Ebere, who decried the manner some people brazenly engage in doing illegal things with impunity, stressed that no amount of blackmail, and name calling would deter him from achieving his set goals.
He noted that the shared prosperity government of Senator Hope Uzodimma means well for the people as all their actions and policies are geared towards bettering the lives of the people.
He also used the occasion to explain that ENTRACO used one month to inform and educate residents on any action they would embark on radio and decried why people would always attack his field workers unnecessarily.
Ebere, who enjoined residents of Owerri to report to his office any act of intimidation, molestation and other related offences from his field workers, assured them of his firm resolve to discharge his duties in line with accepted standards and decorum.
