Dame Fashola Advocates Clean Environment


The wife of Lagos State Governor, Mrs. Abimbola Fashola, and the chairman of Oshodi-Isolo Local Government, Idris Bolaji Muse-Ariyoh, have called on the people of the council to ensure a clean and healthy environment at all times.

Mrs Fashola who stated this during her environmental sanitation monitoring tour of the area, praised the residents for keeping their environment clean.

The governor’s wife, who was received by the chairman of the council area, Muse-Ariyoh, visited Ajibulu, Samuel, Ayodele and other streets to inspect the state of sanitation in the area.

After her visit, Mrs Fashola praised the people for their co-operation in cleaning their environment.

“We must give it to the chairman because there is a kind of rapport between them, because we could see that all of them were outside doing their job. They should keep it up,” she said.

She urged environmental sanitation defaulters to desist because it is not good for them and the environment.

“They should not do that because it is not good for us. They should ensure that our quarters and drainages are clean,” she said.

On the state government’s decision to devote the month’s sanitation to cleaning of drainages, Mrs Fashola urged the people to key into that decision for the good of all.

“We should all key into it because when we clean our drainages, we will be free from flood. Let us make cleanliness an attitude of life. Let us always clean our environment and our drainages to ensure that they are flowing. If they are not flowing, let us seek the assistance of the local government,” he said.

The chairman of the council, Idris Bolaji Muse-Ariyoh, expressed appreciation for the cooperation of the residents, urging them to keep Oshodi clean.

“I must say thank you for coming out en masse to clean your environment. Unlike before, I have not seen any place where they play football. Playing football is a tradition but today it is different. They should keep doing that.

“We called the people of Oshodi and told them that they should clean their drainages and leave the rest for us to cart away. This is what we are doing and we have the people doing that everyday,” he said.
