The National Association of Seadogs, NAS Onitsha chapter has donated waste disposal bin materials to Ogboye Market Onitsha.

Mr. Emeka Uwaeche, president NAS Onitsha said the association saw a need to provide waste disposable materials like waste bins, Packers, and brushes to the markets because of the littering of dirt and waste on the drainages and roadside by the market people.

“We noticed that most market women dump their refuge in the drainages which block the drainage and it’s been flushed out by the rain to the roadside,” he said.

Sensitizing the Ogboye market women on the importance of cleanliness in their market environment, Emeka urged the women to make good use of the donated waste disposable materials to dump their refuge until the evacuation refuge trucks come around. 
“We intend to visit other markets and give them waste bins to enable them to keep the marketplace clean”. He added that protecting and keeping the environment clean is one of their top priority as an association in line with the agenda of the Onitsha North chairman.

In addition, Mr Okwudili Ikpeazu, commander of the Onitsha Vigilante group encouraged the market women to always keep their environment clean. He said that when they make good use of the waste materials that have been donated to them to pack their refuge, it will be easier for the evacuation truck to dispose of the waste and it will keep the market clean. He also promised to increase the security in the marketplace to enable their goods and shops to be safe.
Mrs Ada Iba, a market executive complained that the waste evacuation trucks do not usually come frequently but only once in a while and that causes the waste to be much in the market. She also pleaded with the government to make the trucks come frequently to enable them to dispose of their refugees on time and avoid littering the marketplace.

Mrs Florence Obasi, another executive of Ogboye market thanked the NAS association for their donations. “It is not easy to bring this items freely to the market, we appreciate your efforts and we also want you to check on us from time to time to make sure we are doing well”. She prayed for God to bless them in all their endeavours.
