Osogbo Fast Becoming Dirtiest State Capital – Group
  • PublishedDecember 1, 2023

A civil society organization, Transparency and Accountability Group (TAG), has called the attention of Osun State government to what it described as the increasing dirtiness of Osogbo, the state capital. 

According to the group, Osogbo was fast becoming the dirtiest state capital, going by the unclean state of major roads and streets. 

Spokesperson for the group, Comrade Ayo Ologun, while speaking with OSUN DEFENDER yesterday noted that every major road in the state capital has become an eyesore due to the heaps of refuse littering the roads.

He admonished the state government to orientate the citizens and enforce the law guiding sanitation in the state. 

He said, “A visit through Ogo Oluwa, Jaleyemi Junction through Igbona and Stadium on a daily basis is an eyesore and a bad depiction of a capital city

“First is the orientation of the populace and then enforcement of law guiding sanitation in the state. We must be deliberate about a clean society. It is an antidote to sickness and pandemic.”

OSUN DEFENDER had in its September 08, 2023 edition called the attention of the state government to the weeds and dirt that had taken over major roads in Osogbo.

Residents of the state attributed the dirtiness of the roads to the absence of social workers.

The state government had on February 16, 2023, cancelled the Osun Youth Empowerment Scheme (OYES) whose beneficiaries included the social workers, replacing it with Imole Youth Corps which has not commenced since then. 

Also, the medium noted that Osun Waste Management Agency personnel were not packing the waste as regular and early as before.
