Urgent Need for State, LG Intervention In Sanitation Situation In Ikorodu
The call by the Lagos State Government for cleaner environment may not be achieved if drastic measures are not put in place.
In Ikorodu, drains and canals are filled with refuse with nobody paying attention. The shorelines from Ipakodo, Ibeshe, Oreta, Offin, Bayeku and Ijede are more or less a dump sites with adverse effects on the environment and living condition of the residents.
While calling on the Lagos State Ministry of Environment, Lagos State Waste Management Authority (LAWMA), the Ikorodu Local Government and other LCDAs Health Departments to live up to their billings, residents as well need to know that refuse needs to be sanitarily disposed; otherwise, it becomes a source of disaster and infectious diseases.
