To address environmental challenges, the Lagos State government will reintroduce its monthly environmental sanitation program starting July 13.

This program, which was discontinued in 2016, aims to create a cleaner and healthier environment for the state.

Commissioner for Environment and Water Resources, Tokunbo Wahab, announced that Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu and the State Executive Council approved the program’s revival.

“Lagos has grown exponentially with the attendant environmental problems associated with managing 20 million people.

The environmental laws and procedures being practised in the state have not been able to match the growth and the dream of a 24-hour economy,” Ayorinde stated.

The monthly sanitation exercise, scheduled for the last Saturday of each month, will address flooding, waste management, and pollution.

Additionally, it aims to educate residents on the importance of environmental hygiene and promote community involvement in maintaining a clean and safe environment.

The state government has assured residents that the reintroduced program will be more effective and efficient, with measures in place to minimize disruption to daily activities
