Traders embrace Cleaner Lagos Initiative

Cleaner Lagos

Cleaner Lagos Initiative (CLI) has taken its awareness campaign to major markets across the state.
This is to ensure traders and artisans in the state play their parts in achieving a cleaner and safer environment.
The CLI team visited Bariga, Computer Village, Mile 12, Oyingbo, Mushin, Idumota, Oshodi, Agege, Ajah, Lekki, Yaba and Orile markets.
The visit was led by Nollywood actor/comedian, Oluwatoyin Bayegun a.ka. Official Arole.
The traders were entertained with playing of trumpets, skating and dancing.
A vegetable seller at Oyingbo market praised the state government’s efforts towards providing clean environment.
She said: “You know our customers like neat environment. If the environment is dirty, it will make them stay away. But if we have a clean market, it means many people will come.”
She urged the government to ensure that the Public Utility Levy (PUL) rate that will be charged be affordable.
At Mushin Market, the traders engaged the CLI team with several questions regarding waste management. They were also given waste free bags to dispose their refuse.
The state government will soon announce a hotline through which residents can directly make enquiries, complaints or offer suggestions on waste management in Lagos State.
