Edo State Gover­nor God­win Obaseki has sworn-in Omoua Alonge Oni-Ok­paku as the Com­mis­sioner for En­vi­ron­ment and Sus­tain­abil­ity in the state. The for­mer com­mis­sioner Mr. Regi­nald Okun was sacked over poor han­dling of en­vi­ron­men­tal is­sues and protest by street sweep­ers.

Obaseki warned Oni-Ok­paku to shun acts ca­pa­ble of de­rail­ing the progress in the sec­tor.

Re­spond­ing, Oni-Ok­paku promised to live up to the con­fi­dence re­posed in her.

She said she would en­gage youths in the pro­tec­tion and preser­va­tion of the en­vi­ron­ment, in line with the state govern­ment’s Keep Edo Clean Project and other pro­grammes.
