ARDS Commences Mop Up In Dei-Dei Market

The Agriculture and  Rural Development Secretariat (ARDS) of the Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) has said it has  commenced the cleaning of Dei-Dei international livestock market in Abuja Municipal Area Council (AMAC), with the aim of addressing unhygienic practices.

An officer of the secretariat and newly appointed manager of the market, Hussaini Ahmad, said the introduction of the sanitation was to improve the hygienic nature of the cattle market and meeting up with the standard in the Federal Capital.

Ahmad explained that clean environment needs to be encouraged in the market, by ensuring that all areas are kept tidy through constant cleaning and dumping of waste at only the designated places.

“This is an international market that specialized in animal that people buy for consumption, which has to do with their health and it cannot be overlooked or allowed to be dirty. It attracts people from different places, so the standard has to be in place, especially in line with the FCT policy. Issue of sanitation have to be taken serious by everybody in the market, that is why I make it a compulsory matter for all, so that the standard will be ascertain,” he said.

Ahmad said poor drainage system in the area would be looked into, with a view of coming up with plans that could address the drainage challenge in the entire market.

“If there is a better drainage system in this place, it will help the free flow of water and can stop accumulation of waste in one place,” he said.
