ChukwuOlisa 06/25/2020

It is very sad that Lagos State has emerged as the dirtiest state in Nigeria, despite the efforts being made by the government to clean up the megacity,proved abortive.

Lagos State is a state in South Western part of Nigeria. Lagos State was the capital of Nigeria, prior to 1991, when General Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida's military regime moved the capital down to Abuja but the idea did not emanate from him, it came from General Murtala Mohammed but he didn't achieve it, till his sudden death in February, 1976 in a bloody coup d'etat led by Buka Suka Dinka. In 1999, when Governor, Bola Ahmed Tinubu's emerged as a fourth republic Governor of the state, little or nothing was done to clean up Lagos, till Governor Babatunde Fashola came on board in 2007 and he tried his best to get rid of debris in the megacity of Lagos but the huge commercial and industrial activities didn't allow the clean up idea to see the light of the day. The immediate past Governor, Ambode also tried his best but his best was good enough as the state, still remains very dirty.
