Alhaji Mustapha Suleiman, the chairman of the group, made the call in an interview in Bauchi, the state capital, on Friday, March 18, 2022.

He said the city of Bauchi was growing faster and expanding by the day to assume a full cosmopolitan status.

“There is the need for additional incinerators to further enhance sanitary activities in public places,” he said.

He suggested that the dumps should be sited at strategic locations within the town, especially motor parks, markets, government agencies and other public places for proper sanitation.

He said their organisation conducted refuse evacuation and disposal, fumigation, cleaning services and evacuation of soakaways.

“We are soliciting for government interventions like financial support on soft loans basis to enable us improve our activities and expand them to the 20 local government areas,” he said.

According to him, there were 21 private independent refuse evacuation companies registered in 2014.
