The Oyo State Government has sealed the indigenous Premier Hotel situated at Mokola hill and an event centre located at Eleyele, for violating the environmental sanitation laws of the state.

The Honourable Commissioner for the Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources, Mr. who led the enforcement team alongside the Coordinating Director of the Ministry, Mr. Rogba Adedigba, Director Environmental Health Services, the Environmental Task Force, Amotekun Corps and Environmental Health Officers, among others during the week reiterated that the need to seal up these facilities became necessary so as to put an end to environmental nuisance in the state.

The Commissioner who was appalled with the attitude of the management of Premier Hotel for accumulating heaps of wastes within their premises, wondered why the management failed to co-operate with the designated authorised waste collector, despite the 7-days ultimatum given to them to evacuate their wastes.

“It is disheartening that despite efforts of this administration to provide an enabling and sustainable environment to residents, people still go ahead violating the environmental laws of the state whereas a filthy environment poses threats to individual’s lives in the state. When sickness comes, it knows no boundaries”, the Commissioner added.

In the same development, over 80 shops were sealed at Sango market for non-compliance of environmental sanitation laws which include indiscriminate dumping of wastes on the road median, accommodating a filthy drainage at the frontage of their shops and non-compliance with the authorised waste collector while also the event centre was sealed for patronizing illegal waste collector.
