Wahab said the state government was determined to restore sanity in the state.

He said: “The era of environmental indiscipline and nuisance are over in Lagos. We will not shy away from enforcing all relevant laws irrespective of whose ox is gored.

Lagos despite its peculiarities as a coastal state with low-lying terrains and a high population density among others has remained afloat because of various measures put in place by the government.”

Wahab, who said the ministry has strengthened its Drainage Enforcement activities said: “I tell people climate change is real and there is a cholera outbreak, We must know that all these things are Interwoven We must all be responsible and responsive as a people, people cannot continue to brazenly abuse the environment and expect that there will be no consequences.”

At Sangotedo by Lagos Business School, the Commissioner said: “A 48 hours contravention notice have been served to owners of buildings lying within the channels and 14 days abatement and when that elapses the law will take its course.

“We will commence full enforcement after the expiration of all notices with an option of voluntary compliance.

“Lagos despite its peculiarities as a coastal state with low-lying terrains and a high population density among others has remained afloat because of various measures put in place by the government.”
