The poor attitude of many residents of Warri towards environmental sanitation has reared its ugly head even into public schools.
Apart from College of Commerce Warri that is presently guest to refuse from unknown traders at the gbogbo line in Igbudu market, some other public schools within Warri and Uvwie experience similar defacing.
Refuse, empty food packs and faeces are daily thrown through the fence into College of Commerce.
The School shares a common fence with the traders dealing on Okrika in Igbudu market.
Some of the traders on Okrika clothes feigned ignorance of the development and linked customers returning home as being responsible.
Principal of College of Commerce Warri, Mr Felix Useh and a security guard described the development as worrisome as it poses a health risk to both the students and teachers.
Meanwhile, all students of the Senior Secondary School three in both public and private schools preparing for the Senior Secondary School Certificate organised by WAEC have fully resumed and receiving lectures.
Teachers are also on ground to put the students through according to the syllabus before the examination kicks off on the 17th of August, 2020.
In their reaction, the chairman of the Okrika market in Igbudu market, Mr Innocent Idjedeki confirmed the complaints by the authorities of College of Commerce and promised that action would be taken soon to address the challenges.
