Marina Lagos MutiuOkediran Feb 2014 (5)In view of the security implication and dangers inherent in siting mechanics and artisans workshops on gas pipeline, the Lagos State Government has advocated against such act and directed an enlightenment campaign to educate the residents to desist from such.
The Governor of Lagos State, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode, has therefore directed the Ministry of the Environment to embark on immediate public enlightenment with a view to sensitizing those affected to relocate in order to prevent disaster.
In line with this directive, Ministry of the Environment and KAI Brigade today commenced inspection around the gas pipeline area and have started sensitising the general public on the dangers and security implications of their continued stay in such places.
The KAI Administrator, Mr. Deji Badejo, while addressing those involved around Otedola Bridge, warned them on the dangers of the action.
He told them that the land is reserved as setback for the gas pipeline and urged them to voluntarily vacate the place for their safety.
