YABA LENS……….April Monthly Environmental Exercise.May 2nd, 2012 | By Akinlade Dada | Category: Community Development, Lead Story, NEWS
The Executive Chairman Hon. AbdulRaheem Olajide Jimoh and members of his cabinet were at Alara Street to observe this month environmental sanitation exercise.
The chairman who was also in company of the leader of the council, Hon Bola Linda John and other councillors was not happy at the disgusting nature of the entry point of Alara street by commercial Avenue as huge of refuse, abandoned vehicles and shanties were at both sides of the road.
The chairman ordered the immediate removal of all the abandoned vehicles and instructed the Yaba LCDA Environmental Corps to ensure that nobody sells on the road side again as from Monday. He also warned that vehicles should be packed on one lane and not indiscriminately as he observed on the road.
The chairman also frowned at the illegal structures erected on the culvert along Lancaster Street and ordered that they be pulled down as they constitute environmental nuisance in the Street. The blocked drainage in front of Queens College was cleared to allow for free flow of water as we approach rainy period.
Some arrests were made of people that turned abandoned vehicles their place of abode and those that moved around during the exercise. The Permanent Secretary in one of the Ministries in Alausa, Engr. Tayo Bamgbose Martins was also around with the Chairman.
