Kadiri quoted the Managing Director of LAWMA, Dr Muyiwa Gbadegesin , as saying that the authority had stepped up its drive to rid the state of waste and it had become necessary to engage all stakeholders , including physically – challenged persons.
“The cleanliness of the Lagos State is a collective responsibility .
We need all hands to be on deck to help us realise our vision of building a cleaner city we all will be proud of .
“ That is why we have decided to engage these special sweepers to play their own part in achieving this , ” he said .
Gbadegesin pointed out that LAWMA had engaged the services of the physically -challenged sweepers , instead of leaving them to beg on the streets .
He explained that they would be assigned to clean various pedestrian bridges in the state .
“ We have mapped out pedestrian bridges where they will be operating such as Ojota New Bridge , Alausa Secretariat Bridge , Ikeja Along Bridge , CMS Bridge , Palm Groove bridge , Oshodi Oke bridge , Anthony Bus Stop and others.
“ They will ensure that these locations are always cleaned up during the day.
“ A total of 20 physical challenged persons have been employed by the authority , with plans to scale it up , ” Gbadegesin said .
He urged the sweepers to contribute their own quota towards ensuring environmental sustainability in the state.
Gbadegesin implored residents to support the efforts of government at restoring environmental dignity , adding that the authority would not rest on its oars until effective sanitation was entrenched in every part of the metropolis
