(November 26, 2014) The Lagos state government is worried over incessant law suits filed by residents on ongoing development projects in the state. Governor Babatunde Fashola who made this known while inaugurating the Agege Waste Transfer Loading Station said such law suits have been stalling the completion of such projects.
Governor Fashola made particular reference to law suits instituted against the Iyana-Ipaja Bridge, and Osborne Jetty which was designed to make the journey from Ikorodu to Ikoyi shorter.
While describing the Agege Transfer Loading Station as a fulfillment of an electoral promise made to tackle environmental degradation, Governor Fashola announced that plans were underway to integrate cart-pushers into the state waste disposal structure.
Earlier in an address, the Managing Director, Lagos Waste Management Authority, LAWMA, Mr. Ola Oresanya said the station was the third of twenty of its kind planned for the state.
Mr Oresanya said sites for four others in Ogombo, Abule-Egba, Ishashi, and Owutu in Ikorodu were already been developed.
The first two transfer loading stations located at Sura on Lagos Island and Oshodi were inaugurated in 2009 and 2011.
An engineering academy located within the state technical college at Ikotun area of the state was also inaugurated by the Lagos state government.
