Lagos plants 10 historical trees to kick-start World Environment Day.

Lagos State Government kicked off the 2022 World Environment Day celebration with the planting of 10 historic breadfruit trees to ensure the sustenance of ‘One planet earth’.

Permanent Secretary, Office of Environmental Services, Omobolaji Gaji, who spoke at the ceremony, which took place at St. Paul’s Anglican Primary School, Breadfruit, Lagos, said the task of regenerating the environment should not be left to the government alone.

Gaji, who said it was a campaign to ensure that the beautiful planet remains a comfortable home for humanity, said the celebration was a historic milestone for the global environmental community as it marks 50 years since the 1972 United Nations Conference on the Human Environment.

Earlier, the representative of the Education Secretary, Lagos Island Education District, Mr. Rasheed Fashanu, commended the state government for replanting the historical tree in the school as the area in times past was named after the tree because of the large concentration of breadfruit trees in the area.

Also, the Director of, the Sanitation Services Department, Dr. Hassan Sanuth, explained that trees planted were indigenous ones and synonymous with certain areas.
