Eid-el-Fitr: LAWMA tasks residents on cleanliness

The Managing Director/CEO of the Lagos Waste Management Authority, LAWMA, Dr. Muyiwa Gbadegesin, has urged Lagos residents to make clean environment a permanent habit that goes beyond occasions and festivities.

Gbadegesin said this in a statement on Monday in Lagos, while congratulating the Muslim faithful on the successful completion of Ramadan, leading to the celebration of Eid-el-Fitr.

He noted that personal hygiene and environmental cleanliness were part of the teachings of Islam that should become permanent in the daily lives of residents beyond the Ramadan period.

“Islam teaches cleanliness at the personal level, at home and the environment. Islam abhors filth and dirtiness anywhere around us.

“I appeal that we make this great teaching a permanent feature of our daily lives and living. Whatever we put into the environment is what it will give back.

“Therefore, let us maintain good hygiene at the domestic front as well as the larger environment, all for our own good,” Gbadegesin said.

While wishing the muslim faithful happy celebration, the LAWMA boss urged them to shun reckless waste disposal at street corners, road medians, sidewalks, black spots and other unauthorised locations.

He warned that LAWMA’s enforcement personnel had been mobilised to apprehend defaulters for immediate prosecution.

He gave the assurance that the Private Sector Participant (PSP) operators would continue to work optimally, while the agency would provide backup services in areas that required such.

He urged motorists to drive with caution to ensure the safety of sanitation workers on major roads during the festivities.

He further appealed to residents to contact LAWMA customer care to report service gaps for quick intervention.
