Culture That Started Flooding In Lagos Must End!!!

9

It's no longer news that it's not only the government that is responsible for the continuous flooding constantly disgracing the Lagos State status of being a mega city!!!! It is the the culture of throwing dirt's in the gutters or soakways before rainfall and during rainfal that hasn't stopped that is responsible for this constant flooding. It starts with the disregard for laws in among the citizens . Throwing dirt's in the wrong places and the worst thing about it all is that these wastes have continued to accumulate in the dry season and then when rain falls it blocks the drainage and spews onto the road and diverts flood. It's always annoying and sad with all the hype. We must condemn this mentality and orientate our people on the hazards of wrong sewage disposal. I feel also that the waste Binmust become compartmentalized to accommodate all form of waste,from perishable foods,to plastics and disposable goods to electronic and cellophane. It is infact the satchet and plastics that are so highly generated . The bushes are the worst receivers of waste and this occurs at night. When waste disposal trucks don't visit some areas then the people have to improvise and throw things in the bushes. After all it is the white man that turned Africa into a dumping ground with all their experiments. But it would take a longer time before our people can be free from this kind of culture. If government can monetize waste disposal by ensuring that people get paid for bringing some goods for recycling I tell you it would be the greatest low job offer to millions. This is because waste is generated even more than money in Lagos State but not properely recycled as it ought to be.
