If You Stay In Lagos State And Spread Your Clothes Outside, Lagos State Government Will Seal Your House

The Lagos State Government on Saturday said it would seal up any building where residents displayed their clothes outside indiscriminately.
The state Commissioner for Environment, Tunji Bello, gave the warning while speaking with newsmen shortly after monitoring the monthly sanitation exercise in Egbe-Idimu area of the state.

He said  spreading of  washed clothes on fences and frontage of  buildings was becoming the norm in some parts of the state.

According to him, the practice constitutes a nuisance to the environment.
The commissioner also warned residents,  who wash  and spread their clothes on bridge railings on  major roads to desist from such act, saying tough actions would be taken against erring persons.
“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,” Mr. 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.”
