    Bauchi State Government has set up a committee to investigate and proffer solutions to environmental problems that affect Birshin Fulani community in Bauchi local Government Area.

    He pledged the state government’s commitment to ensuring a safe environment for residents by tackling the challenge of environmental pollution in the communities.

    “Environmental problems affect the community in a number of negative ways. Pollution contaminates the air and water with toxins, which leads to health consequences for impacted communities.

    “Nobody has immunity to combat the negative impact of environmental pollution and that is why, as a concerned government, we are going to ensure a safe environment,’’ he said.

    Maiwada explained that members of the committee comprised concerned residents of Birshi Community, government officials, environmentalists and management of Triacta Construction Company.

    Earlier, Alhaji Lawal Ahmed, village head of Birshin Fulani, said that the firm had made some efforts to cushion the effect, including constructions and plans to build a health facility.

    “We are indeed facing challenges with the dust particles in this community, especially as it relates to our health.

    “With the committee in place, certainly we will find a solution to our problem,” he said.
