Oyo clears refuse on Gbagi market pedestrian bridge

The Oyo State Government Waste Management consultant, Mottainai Recycling Ltd has cleared heaps of refuse and human excrement at the new Gbagi pedestrian bridge, in Ibadan.

They said the bridge has been effectively cleaned up and the authorities have assigned sweepers to ensure its sustainability.

The Managing Director, Mottainai Recycling Ltd, Mr. Adey Adewuyi said the decision to clean pedestrian bridges in the State capital was part of the company's commitment to keep public spaces in the State clean. 

Adewuyi called for public participation in sustaining the Oyo State Government clean environment drive.

"Until recently, this pedestrian bridge was home to destitute, but henceforth, we will deploy a Special Task Force to flush them out and put an end to the misuse of public infrastructure," he said.

He said the objective of ensuring the safety of all road users, through the use of pedestrian bridges, must not be neglected.

Adewuyi noted that the decision to build the bridge was not unconnected with the high rate of mortality usually recorded on busy roads. 

He appealed to pedestrians to use the bridge, saying the government’s intention with the bridges is to save lives.
