According to the Commissioner, all the abattoirs and slaughterhouses in the State would also be sterilized, stressing that the State Government was taking proactive measures in order to improve the overall general sanitation and hygiene situations of public places in the State.

Lawal urged residents to ensure that rats were totally exterminated from their homes while also taking effective measures to discourage rats from surviving within their environment, adding that the importance of promoting good community hygiene cannot be overemphasized.

The Commissioner, therefore, advised members of the public to always store grains and other foodstuffs in rat-proof containers, dispose of garbage far from homes, maintain clean household-culture and understand as well as practice basic hand-washing hygiene.

The exercise is expected to end on Thursday, 7th May 2020.
