INSIDEMAINLAND – The Lagos State Government has urged all residents to ensure proper cleanliness and waste management in order to prevent the spread of diseases like cholera and diarrhea.

The Permanent Secretary, Office of Environmental Services, Omobolaji Gaji, gave this advice in a statement on Sunday during the celebration of the World Clean-Up Day, in Alausa, Ikeja.

The Director of Environmental Education, Mrs. Monsurat Banire, said the exercise was part of a global social action program that was first implemented in Estonia in 2018 to address the world’s solid waste problem.

According to him, “The environment needs people just as people need the environment because there is a strong correlation between lack of sanitation and health problems such as malaria, diarrhea, cholera, and death, hence it is vital for everyone to collectively contribute their quota in achieving and ensuring environmental sustainability.

“As a result of the large and increasing population in the state, waste generation is an unavoidable aspect of man’s activities and should be well managed.

“Everyone present is expected to put his or her full dedication into today’s exercise to ensure the complete clean-up of the designated areas and emulate the gesture to ensure adequate protection of the environment.”

In his address, The Baale of Alausa Land, Toyin Badmus, encouraged citizens to help the government maintain the practice of regular environmental cleanup.
