Lagos State government To Seal Buildings that Indiscriminately Hang Washed Clothes

The Lagos State government has threatened To Seal Buildings that Indiscriminately Hang Washed Clothes and this was made known by Commissioner for Environment, Mr Tunji Bello after monitoring the monthly sanitation exercise in Egbe-Idimu area of the state.

According to Bello, He said spreading of washed clothes on fences and frontage of buildings was becoming the norm in some parts of the state and the practice constitutes a nuisance to the environment.

“We are telling residents who wash and spread clothes on the streets, major highways and other places outside their homes to desist from the practice as it constitutes a great environmental nuisance.

“This is not good for our people and our state. We have directed the officials of the Lagos State Waste Management Agency (LAWMA) to pack those clothes as refuse wherever they see them.

“We will not hesitate to seal up buildings or houses outside of which compounds residents hang their clothes indiscriminately,“ Bello said.
He also urged the residents to create spaces within the confines of their homes to spread their clothes rather than doing so in places “not friendly to the environment.’’

UNILAG & YABATECH take note, lol...
