Back in 2007, when Babatunde Fashola became the Governor of Lagos state, he came with a mission; to beautify Lagos, among other obejectives.
One of the projects he embarked on was to clean up the state, which had refuse littering the streets and wastes lying around on the road.
Fashola made Lagosians aware that it was no more business as usual, as he mandated the Lagos Waste Management Authority, LAWMA, to take over the business of waste disposal, which consequently, put the ‘wheel barrow’ waste agents out of business.
For a while, it seemed to work, but its 2014, and the state is gradually slipping back to the status quo of refuse being dumped on the streets.
