 LASG TO DEMOLISH PART OF ESTATE OBSTRUCTING CANAL

Ojota Park, Enforcing the law can be a challenge. By Bode Modupe, Lagos, NigeriaThe Lagos State Government has vowed to demolish part of a new housing estate obstructing the Iya Alaro stream and canal near Ojota-Maryland axis of the state.
Speaking at the Monthly Inter-Agency press briefing of the Ministry of the Environment, the Commissioner, Dr. Babatunde Adejare, stressed that the Government will carry out the demolition to serve as a deterrent to others violating the State Environmental Laws.
He disclosed that an aerial tour of the state revealed a mixed report of the environment, noting that “on one side, the overall picture reveals a state of natural aquatic splendour that would be the envy of a city like Dubai, while on the other side, there are instances of environmental degradation”.
Adejare revealed further that, as part of Governor Ambode administration’s determination to deliver an aesthetically safe, beautiful and healthy state to Lagos by its 50th anniversary, the popular Olushosun Landfill site will soon give way.
He disclosed that the new thinking of the government is to consolidate on its waste to wealth programme by harnessing plastic waste from the landfills for recycling on a large scale.
