BACKLOG OF WASTE TO DISAPPEAR SOON – LAWMA MD

Published

on

 

The Managing Director/CEO of the Lagos Waste Management Authority (LAWMA), Mr. Ibrahim Odumboni, has given assurance that the backlog of waste dotting the cityscape will be a thing of the past in seven days.

He spoke while coordinating operations around the city, adding that LAWMA would exploit the gradual cessation of rainfall and appreciable progress on landfill rehabilitation to achieve the feat.

Odumboni said: “Thankfully, the rains have subsided and coupled with the reasonable progress on rehabilitation at the landfills, all these are working for good to complement our efforts. I can tell you that the backlog of refuse will be gone in seven days. We have re-energised our operational machinery, working in renewed collaboration with the PSP operators”.

He also stated that PSPs will provide optimal service delivery, just as the agency has been providing backup services in areas with noticeable service gaps.

“We are working on an arrangement to sort out some of the issues affecting the performance of PSP operators in the State, especially the issue of scarcity and high cost of diesel, which has practically undermined our efforts to rid Lagos of the waste backlog”, he stated.

The LAWMA boss, however, urged residents to bag and containerise their waste and support the efforts of the Authority to sanitise the environment by shunning indiscriminate waste disposal, which is one of the major reasons for flood disasters and other attendant environmental hazards.

Also speaking, the President of the Association of Waste Managers of Nigeria (AWAMN), Mr. David Oriyomi, noted that the PSP operators have a renewed commitment to their responsibility of maintaining a clean environment despite obvious challenges and would stop at nothing to get the job done.

He maintained that the PSP operators work closely with LAWMA to discharge their statutory duties of evacuating waste generated by tenements in the State, appealing to residents to ensure prompt payment of their waste bills.

Tinubu Peter Obi

The All Progressives Congress, APC, presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, has listed conditions his counterpart from the Labour Party, LP, Peter Obi, must meet before engaging in a debate with him.

Tinubu said he would engage Obi in a debate after he released his manifesto for Nigerians to scrutinize.

Speaking through the spokesman of his campaign team, Festus Keyamo, Tinubu said Obi should also list his achievements during his tenure as governor of Anambra State before any debate can hold.

Keyamo said Obi should name any political party he formed.

He said Obi should disclose those he had mentored in politics who are still with him before asking for a debate.

“Before Obi can stand shoulder to shoulder with Asiwaju to debate, he should first release a manifesto for scrutiny; then he should list his tangible achievements as Governor of Anambra State compared to the tangible achievements of Asiwaju as Governor of Lagos State.

“Then he should list those he has mentored in politics from the days of his being Governor who is still with him now; then he should tell us any political party he has either formed or partnered to form and which he still belongs to today.”

Nigerian legend, Austin Jay Jay Okocha, has hailed the Teranga Lions of Senegal for their ‘heart’.

According to Okocha, Aliou Cissé’s side are fearless, and believe they can beat any team at the ongoing 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.

Senegal booked their place in the World Cup Round of 16 on Tuesday night after beating Ecuador 2-1.

The AFCON champions will face England in the knockout stage this weekend.

Speaking on SuperSport, Okocha said,

“One good thing that this Senegalese team has got right from years back is heart. They are fearless and they believe they can beat anybody.

“Also, the character of their manager has been passed on to this team. I managed to play with him, he was not the most brilliant player, but he had heart.

“You can see from this Senegalese team that what they’ve going for them now is team spirit because they’re missing crucial individual players like [Sadio] Mane, who finished second in the Ballon d’Or.”
