“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.

According to him, members of the committee were concerned residents of the Birshi community, government officials, environmentalists and management of Triacta Construction Company.

The commissioner, however, condoled with the people of Gudun Sayawa, where four women died at a mining site in the community.
