Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, on Friday, said there are plans by the state to return the monthly sanitation exercise.

The governor spoke while on an inspection tour of shanties along the road in Orile-Iganmu and traders under the Apongbon bridge.

Sanwo-Olu frowned at the continued disregard for environmental laws, especially those trading under the bridges and roadsides.

He restated his administration’s zero tolerance for illegal trading on roads, bridges and setbacks across the metropolis.

Sanwo-Olu also urged commercial bus drivers to comport themselves and stay within the garages allocated to them.

He said he will also be consulting with the Ministry of Environment to see if it’s possible to re- introduce the monthly environmental sanitation so ‘we can bring back the sanity of a liveable city that we used to know.’

” We have seen a lot of lopsidedness and recklessness, and we need to curtail all abuses in our environment. We will work out a model to sustain our zero tolerance on environmental and transportation infractions,” he said.

The governor was accompanied by Commissioners for Environment, Tokunbo Wahab, Commissioner for Information and Strategy Gbenga Omotoso, Commissioner for Transportation, Osiyemi, and Special Adviser on Transport, Sola GiwaTransport.
