The Lagos Waste Management Authority (LAWMA) has expressed readiness to
cater to the waste management needs of residents before, during, and
after the Easter festivities.
The managing director/CEO, Mr. Ibrahim Odumboni, who gave the indication
in a release, affirmed the agency’s commitment to maintaining a clean
and healthy environment in Lagos, during and after the Easter
He said, to achieve this goal, the agency has stepped up its operations
by adding more fleets across all districts in the state, adding that PSP
operators had also been directed to work efficiently in their designated
areas irrespective of assigned days, with the agency providing backup
services to bridge any gap.
“We want to assure residents that LAWMA has made adequate arrangements
by adding more trucks across all the districts to ensure that this
year’s Easter celebration was observed in an environmentally friendly
atmosphere. PSP operators have also been mandated to ensure prompt
evacuation of waste generated by tenements, during and after the festive
period”, Odumboni said.
He implored the populace to avoid acts that could pollute the
environment, and advised motorists to drive with caution, considering
the sanitation workers (street sweepers) and other service providers
discharging their duties during the period.
While wishing Lagosians a clean Easter celebration, the LAWMA boss urged
residents to bag their waste, patronise assigned PSP operators, and
promptly pay their waste management bills.
