There’s been a lot of changes in our environment in Lagos ranging from road constructions to bridges, streets, infrastructures among others. The executive Gov. Of lagos state, Akinwunmi Ambode on Tuesday while inaugurating the Special Committee on Clean-Up of Victoria Island, Ikoyi and Lekki areas of the state said the state government would do everything possible to bring environmental sanity back to every part of the state.
According to him, the gross abuse of urban planning and environmental laws in the state necessitated the action to clean up the environment and restore it to its desired form.
He also said “Cases of abandoned properties have become very rampant with miscreants and criminal elements taking over these properties as their base to cause havoc.
He stressed that residential areas now have industrial and commercial concerns located there, thereby distorting the balance of the environment.
He submitted by saying the state government could not and will not watch still and allow the environment to be destroyed by people who had no regard for beauty, serenity, law, and order.
