ANAMBRA State is working towards introducing recycling in the state’s waste management and control policies.

  This was announced by on the 13th of January, 2021 by Managing Director Anambra State Waste Management Authority (ASWAMA), Amaechi Akaora in Awka while disclosing the agency’s programmes for the year 2021.

  As stated by Amaechi Akaora, the agency will introduce the policy by partnering with a private firm to establish recycling plants at the different various dumpsites in the State to encourage assemblage of plastics for recycling.

  Noting that the concession and memorandum of understanding for the project are being attended to and to make it work also ASWAMA will introduce waste separation injected estates before February, Akaora disclosed that the programme will be extended to schools and homes as it will eliminate dumping of plastics into drainages and waste beans as well as improve the internally generated revenue of the State.

Akaora also stated that ASWAMA is focused on working with the Medical Association of Nigeria to install three incinerators in the three senatorial districts of the state so that proper incineration of waste evacuated from hospitals will take place.

 He encouraged the people to cultivate the habit of differentiating plastic from the rest of the waste because plastic is a very good item to use for recycling. He also assured that the Anambra State Waste Management Authority will continue to work on waste evacuation in the public domain.

  The Federal Government has disbursed ₦123.348billion (USD324.6million) to states under its States Fiscal Transparency Accountability and Sustainability (SFTAS) Programme for Results.

Mrs Zainab Shamsuna Ahmed, Minister of Finance, Budget and National Planning, revealed this in a statement signed by Mr Hassan Dodo, the Ministry’s Director of Press and Public Relations, Wednesday in Abuja.

 The finance minister said that the disbursement followed the achievement of results by the states in the just concluded 2019 Annual Performance Assessment (APA).

  Mrs Ahmed said the disbursement included N91.048 billion (USD239.6 million) of performance-based grants for the 2019 APA results achieved by 32 Eligible States across various Disbursement Linked Indicators (DLIs) including fiscal transparency, accountability, expenditure efficiency, revenue mobilization and debt sustainability.
