Ban on maize planting and tall crops in Plateau State!

The General Manager, Plateau State Environmental Protection and Sanitation Agency (PEPSA)  Mr Christopher Batai, has  declared that the law banning the planting of maize and tall crops in residential areas in Plateau State was still in force.

He told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Monday March 28, 2016 in Jos the state capital that tall crops in residential areas served as breeding sites for vectors such as mosquitoes and rodents like rats. He explained that with the commencement of the rains, it has been  discovered that people have started clearing the little spaces in their compounds to start planting.

He stressed that PEPSA is advising the public to desist from planting tall crops in their compounds and in residential areas as the law prohibiting the act is still in full force, stating that the Agency will prosecute defaulters.
