Lagos State government on Saturday, came to the rescue of several residents of the state especially in the Lekki phase 1 axis who are suffering untold hardship of inaccessibility by removing permanently closed inner roads/gates.
This is contained in a statement signed by Kunle Adeshina, Director, Public Affairs of the Ministry of Environment and Water Resources in Lagos.
Adeshina said that the enforcement operation, which was authorized by Mr Governor, followed several days of traffic snarl which residents connecting Lekki were experiencing due to inaccessibility of connecting roads.
He said that Roads and Streets already enforced since the operation started included Sir Rufus Foluso Giwa, Theopilus Oji, Osaro Isokpan, Abike Sulaiman, Ben Okagbue MBA, Olubunmi Rotimi, Olanrewaju Ninalowo, Dele Adedeji, Abayomi Sonuga, Siji Soetan and Rasheed Alaba Williams.
He said that the government decided to commence the Enforcement following the indiscriminate mounting & multiplicity of the gates in many parts of the state, defacing the aesthetics of the environment.
He said that the Commissioner, Tokunbo Wahab, while speaking on the development, said the state government would restore the aesthetics being defaced by the indiscriminate gates by removing them across the state.
Wahab urged all residents associations that have such gates in their estates or communities and always putting them under permanent lock and keys to remove them voluntarily.
