Safety Awareness and Environmental Supports Initiative (SAESI) is a uniform, non-political, non-religious and non-governmental organization. The Safety Awareness & Environmental Supports Initiative has a community oriented vision of making people conscious of their environment to be everywhere they need to be and create employment by supporting all the developmental agencies in the nation.
One notable environmental problem that has bedeviled the nation since the 1970s is municipal solid waste. Municipal solid waste affects the environment in different parts of the globe. In Nigeria the oil boom of the 1970s had resulted into increase in the volume of individual, commercial and industrial activities in towns and cities of the country. These gave birth to many environmental problems such as flood, erosion, solid waste materials, global warming, desertification/drought and pollutions.
The problem of municipal solid waste in developing country is a major concern to government; this problem becomes much worrisome in Nigeria where production of waste is expanding because of increasing population pressure, and other socio-economic factors.
The founding members observed that Nigeria is witnessing an unprecedented growth of cities, and this has implications for every aspect of societal development. It was observed that with the pressure in urban population, existing facilities such as water, electricity, road, educational institutions and housing has become inadequate thereby placing tremendous pressure on existing amenities, and society’s ability to manage the huge solid waste generation and disposal.
The environmental problems highlighted above triggered the formation of SAFETY AWARENESS & ENVIRONMENTAL SUPPORTS INITIATIVE (SAESI) as a call to duty in rendering their quota towards ensuring the sustainability of our environment. As at date, SAESI has over a hundred (100) workforce who are competent to ensure the enforcement of the national environmental safety and other enabling laws.
The organization will be operating nationwide with commands in all 36 states of the federation and FCT, Abuja with the projection of at least, a hundred (100) staff in each of the seven hundred and seventy four (774) local government areas in the country.
