ENVIRONMENTAL POLLUTION OF EDO AREA
I write this letter with a deep sense of duty and responsibility to bring to the notice of the authority the environmental pollution in most parts of Edo State. The environmental hazard is in no small measure bringing health problems to the vast majority of the populace in the state. Yet, the state has the highest population in the country.
The first of this problem is the heavy industrial smoke that pervades the atmosphere in Edo area. This is consequent upon the localization of industries in many parts of Edo metropolis. Industrial smoke brings ill-health to the populace as well as accidents on our roads. The heavy industrial smoke is detrimental to the lives of people as it contains toxic components which bring about lung c****r according to medical research. Over ten thousand Edoians are treated for this disease weekly. The thick smoke poses visibility headache to motorists as it leads to compound motor accidents regularly on Edo roads. A good number of road users have died premature death due to industrial smoke.
Another source of environmental problem in the state is the poor handling of refused an d wastes. As a result of population explosion in Edo area, the refuse and waste is much but the disposal is badly managed. Edo streets during rainy season are better called refused dump sites. This is because everywhere is littered with refuse and waste materials. This in no small way acts as agent of spreading diseases during rainy season. Unfriendly odour fills everywhere in the city and it leads to outbreak of diseases once in a while. A similar occurrence was an outbreak of cholera epidemic in 1998. It was so much widely reported in the international media that FIFA had to withdraw the soccer hosting rights earlier granted Nigeria, it was a calamity and ;national disgrace.
This is not all. During dry season, due to poor management of waste, heaps of refuse are set ablaze by residents as a means of disposal. The smoke emanating from such exercise is yet another source of environmental pollution. It poses threat to life as it caused lung-related problems which are costly to treat medically. It equally affects the sight of people particularly, the motorists and pedestrians. Many road accidents are reported yearly due to this havoc.
To overcome this environmental nuisance, all industrial establishments in the area should be made to treat their industrial wastes with the aim of reducing the toxic nature of such wastes. Also, the state Waste Disposal Board should be decentralized and private companies employed by the state to clear the city of refuse. Finally, only noiseless planes should be allowed to fly, instead of the current ones that are too noisy. There should be acts of parliament by both the National Assembly and Edo State House of Assembly so as to bring environmental pollution to the barest minimum. Finally, the state should compel individuals and corporate bodies to clear their refuse through agents appointed by the state.
In conclusion, there is no doubt in my mind that the issue of environmental pollution in Edo area will be a forgotten issue if my suggestions are well looked into and systematically implemented. I thank you very much for your co-operation.

Rules for Writing Formal Letters
In English there are a number of conventions that should be used when writing a formal or business letter. Furthermore, you try to write as simply and as clearly as possible, and not to make the letter longer than necessary. Remember not to use informal language like contractions.
Addresses:
1) Your Address
The return address should be written in the top right-hand corner of the letter.
2) The Address of the person you are writing to
The inside address should be written on the left, starting below your address.
Date:
Different people put the date on different sides of the page. You can write this on the right or the left on the line after the address you are writing to. Write the month as a word.
Salutation or greeting:
1) Dear Sir or Madam,
If you do not know the name of the person you are writing to, use this. It is always advisable to try to find out a name.
2) Dear Mr Jenkins,
If you know the name, use the title (Mr, Mrs, Miss or Ms, Dr, etc.) and the surname only. If you are writing to a woman and do not know if she uses Mrs or Miss, you can use Ms, which is for married and single women.
Ending a letter :
1) Yours Faithfully
If you do not know the name of the person, end the letter this way.
2) Yours Sincerely
If you know the name of the person, end the letter this way.
3) Your signature
Sign your name, then print it underneath the signature. If you think the person you are writing to might not know whether you are male of female, put you title in brackets after your name.

Use these tips when writing a formal letter
In today's Internet- and email-driven society, the need to write a formal letter arises less often than in the past. However, it is still occasionally necessary to present a formal letter to obtain information, to apply for an academic program or a job, to write a complaint letter, or simply to express your opinion in an effective and coherent manner.

Be concise
State the purpose of your formal letter in the first paragraph and don't veer from the subject. Try to avoid flowery language or long words. Keep the letter short and to the point. This excerpt from Strunk and White's The Elements of Style (4th edition) provides the perfect rule of thumb:

Vigorous writing is concise. A sentence should contain no unnecessary words, a paragraph no unnecessary sentences, for the same reason that a drawing should have no unnecessary lines and a machine no unnecessary parts. This requires not that the writer make all sentences short, or avoid all detail and treat subjects only in outline, but that every word tell.

Use the right tone
A business or formal letter should be written in a tone that is slightly more formal than your everyday language. Avoid the following: slang or jargon; contractions such as I'm, can't, it's; and vague words such as good and nice. Be polite and respectful, even if you are complaining. Take a look at our formal letter example to see what tone is appropriate.

Proofread
Proofreading is so important. Once you have written your formal letter, check the grammar and spelling carefully. Use the spell-checker on your computer and then read the letter over yourself as the spellchecker will not catch every error. Use a dictionary or thesaurus, if necessary. Check the grammar and punctuation for correctness and make sure the sentences are complete.

It is a good idea to have someone else proofread your formal letter, even after you have done so, as you may have overlooked errors in something that you have read over many times. If this formal letter is important enough for you to take the time to write, don't rush its completion. Errors will diminish the impact of the statement or impression you are trying to make.

Use proper format and presentation
Remember that the first impression is the one that lasts. Use good quality paper and a matching envelope for your formal letter. Make sure the recipient is addressed properly and that his or her name is spelled correctly. Equally important—don't forget to sign the letter! Check out our letter writing ebook, which features several examples of formal letters. You can also search for free templates online.

Present your ideas properly: Formatting a formal letter
Adhering to the standard conventions of good formal letter writing and presenting your letter attractively will ensure that your thoughts are seriously considered by the recipient and given the attention and consideration they deserve. Here are a few formatting tips:

Heading
The heading consists of your address (but not your name) and the date. Telephone numbers and email addresses are not usually included here, but they are acceptable. Using block format, the heading goes in the top left-hand corner of the page.

123 Elm Ave.
Treesville, ON M1N 2P3
November 23, 2008

Inside Address
The inside address consists of the name and address of the person to whom you are writing. You should try to address the formal letter to a specific person, but if you do not know his or her name, at least try to include his or her title. This address is usually placed four lines below the heading if a word processor is used or one line below the heading if the letter is handwritten.

Mr. M. Leaf (name)
Chief of Syrup Production (title)
Old Sticky Pancake Company
456 Maple Lane
Forest, ON 7W8 9Y0

Salutation
Skip one line after the inside address and then type the salutation. Your choice of salutation depends on whether or not you know the intended recipient of the formal letter. The most usual greeting is

Dear

followed by the person's name and punctuated with a colon. If you don't know whether the person you are addressing is a man or a woman, you may begin with

Dear Sir or Madam,

again followed by a colon.

Ms.

may be used if you don't know the marital status of a woman. Furthermore, if the person has a specific title such as

Dr.

make sure that you use it. Here are some examples of each salutation:

Dear Mr. Trunk,
Dear Ms. Root,
Dear Mrs. Branch,
Dear Dr. Acorn,
Body
Skip one line after the salutation and begin typing the body of the formal letter. This is the main part of the letter. Keep in mind the rules outlined above regarding brevity and coherence. It is best to use short, clear, logical paragraphs to state your business.

Closing and Signature
This is the end of the letter. Skip one line after the last paragraph of the body of the letter and type the closing. Only the first word of the closing should be capitalized. It is punctuated with a comma. Leave several lines after the closing and type (or print) your signature. Your actual handwritten signature is to be inserted between these two printed lines, written in ink.
