The Lagos State Infrastructure Assets Management Agency (LASIAMA), has commenced the renovation and upgrade of all public office buildings across the State.
A statement issued on Wednesday by the General Manager of LASIAMA, Ms. Adenike Adekanbi, noted that the renovations are part of the State Government’s efforts to establish a system for regular maintenance and refurbishment of government infrastructure and assets for better service delivery in all Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs).
She said the renovation and upgrade are being done in compliance with Standards and Guidelines Document for the maintenance and rehabilitation of government buildings developed by the Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu led administration.
According to the General Manager, the Agency has already completed the renovation of the Agency for Mass Education and LASIAMA buildings, while Blocks III and IV in the Secretariat, Alausa, which host the Ministries of Works and Infrastructure, and Health, respectively, are being remodelled, adding that a similar exercise is ongoing at the Lagos State Environmental Protection Agency (LASEPA) and Public Works Corporation buildings.
In her words: “Alausa Secretariat is going through a revitalisation based on the initiative and approval of Mr. Governor. It is also because the buildings are where most of the interaction between citizens and government officials takes place on a daily basis”.
“We are committed to giving government buildings a better outlook in a sustainable and affordable way. This will also make the workplaces more conducive for government staff to enhance effective service delivery”, Adekanbi said.
While maintaining that the standard guidelines will be strictly complied with in the furnishing, plumbing, electrical fittings and landscaping works being carried out on the public buildings, she stated that Alausa Secretariat will soon wear a new look that typifies the dignity, enterprise, vigour and economic stature of the Lagos State Government.
