Finally, Lagos State Cancels Monthly Environmental Sanitation

The Lagos State Government has cancelled the monthly environmental sanitation exercise held every last Saturday of the month.

the Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Mr. Steve Ayorinde, who announced this in a statement said;

“It is no longer appropriate to restrict movement of people for three hours in a mega city like Lagos at a time they should be pursuing commercial and entrepreneurial activities.

“In the last two decades, Lagos has grown exponentially into a mega city with the attendant huge environmental problems associated with managing a population of over twenty million people.

“But sadly, the environmental laws, policies and procedures being practiced in the State have not been able to match the phenomenal growth and the dream of a 24-hour economy, hence the need for the reform.”
