Speaking during the visit, he urged the team to support him to ensure success in the work.
“I need your support, we need to continue to interface and if there is any issue to be tackled, we need to collectively solve the issue by sitting down to discuss the problem and proffer a way forward.
“If we are able to put heads together, the Environmental Health profession will be stronger,”he said.
He however, advised that if they galvanize their efforts together, they would be able to have enough Environmental Health officers at the service of the local government.
