On Saturday, December 23, the Lagos state government took action to restore the state's masterplan and promote a healthier environment. They dismantled closed gates on inner roads in Lekki Phase 1, which were previously erected by certain residents.
These barriers had been causing significant accessibility issues for residents, leading to untold hardships.
Roads and streets already enforced since the operation started include Sir Rufus Foluso Giwa, Theopilus Oji, Osaro Isokpan, Abike Sulaiman, Ben Okagbue MBA, Olubunmi Rotimi, Olanrewaju Ninalowo, Dele Adedeji, Abayomi Sonuga, Siji Soetan and Rasheed Alaba Williams.
Speaking on the development, State Commissioner for Ministry of Environment and Water Resources, Tokunbo Wahab, said the state government will restore the aesthetics being defaced by the indiscriminate gates by removing them across the state
He urged all residents associations that have such gates in their estates or communities and always putting them under permanent lock and keys to remove them voluntarily.
