The Executive Chairman of Itire-Ikate Local Council Development Area, Hon.(Dr) Ahmed Olanrewaju Apatira today embarked on a working visit to ISOKAN community development association, Airways Ward.
The council boss who was accompanied by the leader of the legislative assembly, Hon Hammed Oladipupo Idris, majority leader, Hon Kazeem Alalukimba, Supervisor for Works, Hajia Mariam Muhammed and officials of the Environmental Services department said the visit is borne out of his commitment to address environmental issues within the aforementioned streets.
He bemoaned the reckless dumping of refuse by residents, adding that the council in collaboration with the Lagos State Neighbourhood Corp (LSNC) would apprehend and severely prosecute those found dumping refuse illegally, to serve as a deterrent to others.
Dr Apatira further revealed that his administration will also embark on massive public enlightenment campaign to educate the people on what they should do to reduce the incidence of flooding and enhance public safety.
“The incidence of flooding is a global phenomenon that is not peculiar to Itire-Ikate alone, but we however urge the CDC and CDA’s to cooperate with his administration in its concerted effort to fight flood by properly disposing their waste into designated areas and desist from dumping refuse into canals, as well as refrain from erecting structures along drainage channels.
