Flood prone areas: Agboyi – Ketu LCDA takes enlightenment drive to Ajegunle, Owode, others

In the aftermath of the flooding across Agboyi – Ketu LCDA caused by torrential rainfall, the administrators of the Agboyi-Ketu Local Council Development Area (LCDA), in the Lagos Mainland area of the State, have commenced and advocacy programme on flood prone areas in the area.

The exercise led by the Head of Environment, Agboyi – Ketu LCDA, Ezekiel Odebiyi, was initiated to educate residents on how to avert flood and its causes in the area.

During the engagement, the council administrators sensitized residents across Owode, Ajegunle, Thomas, Lawal and Esomojumi communities on how to ensure safety of life and property during cases of flood.

Speaking through the Head of Environment, Ezekiel Odebiyi, the LCDA chairman, Mayor Dele Oshinowo, said the exercise was needed to ensure residents are aware of various issues that could threaten their neighbourhoods.

He however stressed that dumping of waste into drainage channels, defecating in the open and intake of unhygienic water must be avoided to ensure an hygienic environment.

The LCDA boss also charged the residents to be environmentally conscious whilst ensuring that they clean their environment clean to prevent water-borne diseases like cholera, diarrhoea, dysentery, typhoid among others.
