The Lagos State Commissioner for the Environment and Water Resources, Tunji Bello, says Lagos is now a cleaner state.
Bello said this on Wednesday, at the ongoing ministerial press briefing to mark the first year of the Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu’s administration.
He said in the last one year, the ministry improved the drainage network in the state, and has implemented strategies to stabilise waste collection activities on public highways, creating a cleaner environment for Lagos’s over 20 million residents.
Bello lauded the ministry for improving the drainage network in the state to facilitate free flow of water through proper channels.
The commissioner explained that while some of the drainage channels had been cleaned up, others were being revisited on a regular basis.
“The state is currently witnessing a cleaner environment as a result of the strategies put in place to stabilize waste collection activities on public highways such as Ikeja, Agege, Alimosho, Iba, Otto Awori and Badagry Expressway,” Bello said.
