He said that the era of having refuse buckets in the city overflowing and causing traffic jams would no longer be allowed in Aba.

Nwogu made the promise during an interview in Aba on Friday, December 24, 2021.

Gov. Okezie Ikpeazu had sacked the Deputy General Manager, Abia State Environmental Protection Agency (ASEPA), in charge of Aba, Chief Rowland Nwakamma, for incompetence.

Ikpeazu, however, gave Nwogu, the Environment Commissioner in charge of ASEPA operations in Aba, an ultimatum to clean up Aba city within 48 hours.
