The Minister of Environment, Mr. John Odey has described waste management as profitable commercial venture which the present administration intends to harness to create employment opportunities for unemployed Nigerians.
 
The Minister stated this while on a working visit to the National Institute for Pharmaceutical Research and Development, NIPRD, to asses the level of work on the Medical Waste Incinerator donated to the Institute by the Federal Ministry of Environment.
