Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo has inaugurated 50 waste management tricycles procured by the Kano State government. The equipment are part of Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje administration’s efforts to fulfil its promises on sanitation and management of solid waste in the state.

Osinbajo unveiled the tricycle-based solution when he visited the state last week. He praised the government for taking the initiative in order to ensure that effective waste management reached all parts of the state.

The waste management solution was developed by Simba Motors Ltd, manufacturers of the vehicle, and the Kano State government. The waste disposal solution is built on the body of a ‘Kary-Go’ Tricycle, with significant local content in the production process.

The Managing Director of Kano State Refuse Management and Sanitation Board (REMASAB), Group Captain Muhammad Kura, said: “The Kary-Go Waste Management Tricycles have been procured to cater for areas where bigger vehicles cannot get access, and are expected to work in tandem with our heavier machines. We have deployed these tricycles because they are compact, easy to drive, economical and safe to use.”

REMASAB oversees the disposal of solid waste centrally for the state.
