IBEJU-LEKKI LOCAL GOVERNMENT DEFLOODING MEASURES: Desilting, Evacuation of Drainages and Road Verges Commences.

The Ibeju-Lekki Local Government Council Mayor, Hon. (Engr.) Abdullahi Sesan Olowa accompanied by Members of his Executive Council today Monday 18th September, 2023 was on an inspection tour to Bogije Community where desilting of drainages and clearing of road verges has commenced.

The Council Mayor while addressing the people of the area shows his displeasure on how waste generated from houses were channelled into drainages. He emphasised on the need for residents to be responsible to avoid being penalised by the Local Government’s Environmental Services Department because of such unhealthy behaviour. The Chairman, however, enjoined the people to pass their waste through the right channel.

The Council Chairman stated that it is the responsibility of both the Government and that of residents to ensure a livable and clean environment through incessant cleaning and shunning environmental menaces .

Mayor Olowa, however seized the opportunity to engage the Association of Dredgers on how to synergies and support the Local Government in abaiting flooding caused by environmental nuisances for easy water flow and passage while commending the CDA of Eputu Community where he later visited for taking it upon themselves to desilt their drainages.

Hon. Olowa and his entourage also visited Ibeju-Agbe Community where the reconstruction of a Box Culvert is ongoing. The project should be completed and ready for use in due course, Hon. Olowa said.

The Council Administration solicits for more support from residents as the Desilting exercise continues.
