Onyenkwere Okwu Okwandu, DHA, is a Nigerian-born public health professional who earned his doctoral degree in Health Administration from the University of Phoenix in 2010, and his office as a Traditional mRuler of the Onicha-Ngwa Amairinano Autonomous Community of Abia State, Nigeria, in August 2002. He has published his latest book “Leadership in Nigeria’s Waste Management Programs: The Case of Abia State (1999-2007)”: a detailed thesis describing the prior void in meaningful and effective protocols in public health and safety and suggestions for improvements for the future.

The author writes, “Immediately after the Nigeria-Biafra Civil War in 1970, environmental health policies became compromised and were bereft of anticipatory guidance for sanitation workers, and town planners who failed to recognize the dangers of urbanization regarding solid waste management, and the necessity of long-term planned landfill programs for the cities of Aba, Umuahia, and the surrounding communities.”

Ever since this author came to the United States of America in 1980 as a registered nurse (RN), his keen interest in the cleanliness of the environment in the cities became a point of curiosity culminating to his pursuit of a terminal degree concentrating on the leadership of solid waste management programs in Abia State.

The focus of the research that resulted to the publication of this book was to determine the existence of solid waste management leadership deficiencies and proffer practical solutions to enhance the transition to the twenty-first century solid waste management leadership skills required for the cities of Aba and Umuahia.

Published by Page Publishing, Onyenkwere Okwu Okwandu’s illuminating book is a compelling argument for stringent standards in public waste management systems.
