Lagos To Re-introduce Monthly Sanitation

Posted on July 9, 2024

To enhance cleanliness, the Lagos State Commissioner of Environment and Water Resources, Mr. Tokunbo Wahab, is set to re-introduce the monthly sanitation.

The government on November 23, 2016 scrapped the exercise which was observed for three hours every last Saturday.

It had explained that the decision was informed by the need for a robust review of the environmental laws and procedures in the state.

The government noted that considering the economic situation, it was no longer appropriate to restrict movement for three hours in a mega city like Lagos at a time they should be pursuing commercial activities.

But, according to the state Environment Update on X, the State Executive Council (SEC) has approved the re-introduction of the exercise.

Wahab said: “Lagos governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu and the state executive council, has approved the re-introduction of the monthly sanitation.

“The governor will announce it officially for the exercise to commence this month,” he said.
