Prof Aliyu Jauro, Director-General of NESREA, a Federal Government agency, said this in Abuja while interacting with our reporter during the organization’s inaugural National Environmental Compliance Award.

He said, “We met with operators in the telecommunications industry and banks. Both of these sectors impact the environment in the course of doing their business.

“When we talk about the telecommunication industry, we talk about radiation that affects human health, causing cancer and others. Also, they produce electronic waste and other forms of waste.”

Jauro added, “So, there is a need for them to ensure that whatever is obsolete is taken to the right place. We have collectors and recyclers who can create value from these wastes.

“The banks and telecommunication companies use generators that run on diesel and in one way or the other, they pollute the environment, emit toxic fumes to the environment, contributing to global warming.”

The NESREA director noted that the majority of companies do not properly maintain their generating facilities.

He stated that they frequently leak oil when maintaining their generators and that, over time, the oil percolates down to the water level and contaminates the drinking water.JAMB portal

Jauro stated, “When such water is consumed by humans or animals, it becomes a serious disaster. So, the activities of the telecommunication and banking industries are impacting on the environment, which was why we reached out to them.

“We asked them to start doing environmental audits and some of them have complied. The meeting was for us to sit together to enlighten them on the need for others to comply so that we can safeguard our environment.”

Meanwhile, Jauro stated that between 2012 and 2022, NESREA conducted environmental compliance monitoring as provided in the national regulations, on more than 8,122 corporate facilities, and sealed 269 firms for various environmental infractions.

He added that while many facilities had been sealed for violating the provisions of environmental laws, the agency, in the course of carrying out its mandates, had observed that some facilities were assiduously working hard in compliance with the national regulations on the environment.JAMB Result

“These facilities to some significant extent have succeeded in promoting best practices and adopting sustainability in their operations,” the NESREA boss stated.
