One of the major issues that plagued Lagos was the rampant drainage blockages that continue to wreak havoc on the water channels. Under the efficient administration of Wahab, the Ministry of the Environment and Water Resources embarked on a comprehensive campaign to tackle this long standing problem.

With meticulous planning and execution, Sanwo-Olu’s synergy with Wahab has been steadily restoring normality to the drainage systems, allowing the smooth flow of water and mitigating the risk of flooding. This achievement is a testament to the Governor’s dedication to creating a safer and more sustainable environment for the people of Lagos.

The fight against dirt within the corridors of marketplaces and the state at large has been a priority for Governor Sanwo-Olu’s administration and the honourable commissioner. With his visionary leadership, Wahab has spearheaded this crusade, propelling Lagos towards a cleaner future. By implementing strict regulations, raising awareness campaigns, and organising regular clean-up exercises, the combined efforts have instilled a renewed sense of responsibility among the citizenry. The streets are beginning to take a new look – cleaner, markets are tidier, and public areas radiate a sense of pride.

Moreover, in a bid to reduce harmful emissions and promote sustainable transportation, Governor Sanwo-Olu has championed the use of electric vehicles and the establishment of charging infrastructure across the state. This forward-thinking approach has garnered widespread praise from environmentalists and residents alike, further solidifying Lagos’ position as a trailblazer in environmental sustainability.

In addition to addressing immediate cleanliness concerns, Governor Sanwo-Olu recognised the urgent need to address climate change. Under the guidance of Wahab, initiatives have been put in place to mitigate the impact of climate change on Lagos. Through the formulation and implementation of environmentally friendly policies, such as promoting sustainable energy sources and encouraging green practices, the state is now on the path towards a greener future.

Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has exemplified exceptional leadership in restoring sanity to Lagos through his tireless efforts within the Ministry of Environment. The commitment to cleanliness, environmental sustainability, and climate change mitigation has yielded tangible results, creating a safer, cleaner, and greater city for the people of Lagos.
