The Lagos State Government through the Lagos Environmental Sanitation Corps (LAGESC) has vowed to continue on its total clampdown on alcohol sales in parks, street trading, hawking on major highways and garages.
LAGESC Corps Marshal, Gbemisola Akinpelu disclosed this, adding that the menace violates the State environmental laws and the Agency is determined to clamp down on all environmental violators, especially those displaying alcohol for sale in Lagos parks and garages.
Akinpelu also highlighted the continuous need for pedestrians to use strategically-erected pedestrian bridges across major highways in the State to avoid being knocked down by motorists.
Meanwhile, the Lagos State Government had a few days ago, read the Riot Act to street traders in the state, especially on the third mainland bridge and eko bridge, declaring zero tolerance for street trading in the areas and vowing to prosecute defaulters in established mobile courts.
The Permanent Secretary, Office of Environmental Services, Gaji Omobolaji Tajudeen, also stated that the action by the state government is in line with the T.H.E.M.E.S. Agenda of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu to promote a cleaner and more aesthetic environment in Lagos, ensure total enforcement of the environmental sanitation laws, and create a safer state for all.
