Eid-el-Fitr: LAWMA tasks Lagosians to make Clean Environment a Habit.

The Lagos Waste Management Authority (LAWMA) has called on residents to make clean environment a permanent habit, that goes beyond occasions and festivities.

The Managing Director/CEO of LAWMA, Dr. Muyiwa Gbadegesin made this call in a release while congratulating the Muslims faithful on successfully completing the Ramadan fast, leading to the Eid-el-Fitri celebration.

Gbadegesin noted that personal hygiene and environmental cleanliness formed integral teachings of Islam, that should become permanent features of our daily living beyond the Ramadan period.

He said, “Islam teaches cleanliness at the personal level, at home and the environment. Islam abhors filth and dirtiness anywhere around us. I appeal that we make this great teaching a permanent feature of our daily lives and living. Whatever we put into the environment is what it will give back. Therefore, let us maintain good hygiene at the domestic front as well as the larger environment, all for our own good.”

Furthermore, he urged Muslims to shun reckless waste disposal at street corners, road medians, side walks, black spots and other unauthorised locations, warning that LAWMA enforcement personnel had been mobilised, to apprehend defaulters for immediate prosecution.

The LAWMA boss assured that PSP operators would continue to work optimally, while the agency would provide backup services in areas that require such, urging motorists to drive with caution, to ensure safety of sanitation workers on major roads during the festivities.

Gbadegesin wished all residents a joyful and clean Eid-il-Fitr celebration, and also encouraged them to contact LAWMA customer care, to report service gaps for quick intervention during and after the festive season.
