Mr. Raph Nnam, the Zonal Director of National Environmental Standards and Regulations Enforcement Agency, said on Friday that five facilities in Rivers had been sealed up for non compliance with standards and regulations.

Nnam told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Port Harcourt that the affected facilities had been given notices of flouting environmental regulations.

“We went to town to enforce compliance to our standards and regulations and in the process; we had to seal five facilities that were not complying.

“We had given these facilities what we call compliance concerns or notices of what they are supposed to do to abate the wrongs they were doing to environment.

“These, they have not complied with over time. Some have lasted for two to three years of non compliance.”

The facilities, he said, were services companies, waste management firms as well as cement and manufacturing companies.

He said some of the companies had paid violation fees to the Federal Government account and were unsealed.

“The agency will continue to monitor enforcement of standards and regulations by facilities to ensure environmental sustainability.” (NAN)
