The Kano State Government has donated sanitation items to the state command of the Nigerian Prisons Service.
The state Commissioner for Environment, Dr Ali Makoda, who presented the items, urged the prisons service to make effective use of the items so as to achieve a hygienic environment.
The commissioner, whom was represented by the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry, Alhaji Sagir Wali, urged the prisons to clear their drains regularly.
He also appealed to the affluent citizens to support the efforts of the Gov. Abdullahi Ganduje’s administration to sanitise the environment.
Receiving the items, the Deputy Comptroller of Prisons, Mallam Ubale Haruna, commended the state government for the gesture.
He pledged to make the best use of the items, adding that the items were donated on time because the inmates had started the cleaning of the prison in preparation for the rainy season.
Haruna, however, solicited the assistance of the state government in fumigating the prison, so as to complement the efforts of the inmates who just cleared the premises.
News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the donated items include wheel barrows, rakes, brooms, dusting brooms and disinfectants.
