Lagos To Resume Monthly Sanitation Exercise


Lagos State Governor, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu has approved the return of the monthly environmental sanitation exercise, seven years after it was discontinued.

Commissioner of Environment and Water Resources in the state, Tokunbo Wahab, confirmed that the governor would officially announce the reintroduction later in the month.

Wahab, in a 21-second video posted on the Lagos State environmental updates X handle on Monday, stated that the exercise would resume in July.

“Our governor and the State Executive Council have approved the reintroduction of the monthly sanitation exercise in Lagos state, beginning from this month,” Wahab said in Yoruba adding “The governor will personally make the announcement.”

The decision comes amid growing concerns over clogged drainage channels and roads littered with refuse which have worsened flooding issues in the densely populated city.
