Makoko Community in Yaba, Lagos came alive recently when Lions Club of Yaba inaugurated some projects in the place.
The club’s president, Mrs Phina Origho listed the projects as a block of eight toilets and bathrooms, water borehole and a 2.5-KVA generator, which cost over N2million.
On why the group embarked on the projects, she said “when we came here to feed the people, we found that everywhere was littered with debris and human faeces and decided on these projects to make the environment good and clean for human living. I want to thank those who helped me to get these projects done.”
The District 2B Governor of Lions Club international, Taiwo Adewunmi thanked Origho and her team for a job well done.
He said “I can confirm that the Lagos Mainland is doing wonderfully well, as we are working to make this place better, these projects are parts of our legacy projects for our centennial celebration.”
The community’s Secretary-General, Mohammed Baba, also thanked Lions Club for the projects and seeks help from government, non –governmental organizations (NGOs), and others for more help in Makoko community
