The Lagos State Environmental Sanitation Board exists for a purpose.
All the environmental tax and levies Lagosians have been paying also exist for a reason.
Stop shifting the blame. Fashola is a failure. He is an embodiment of mediocrity hyped by nothing but hungry praise-singers and 20,000 naira sycophants.
And they are supposed to lay in the drains and canals in stealth mode so as to catch people that throw the dirt in abi? When houses and market stalls are shut for poor sanitation practices, you people are the first to come here crying foul. You always ignore the most important part that citizens should be responsible.
BTW, who is your state governor, and what has he done?

In case you're unaware, that little thing called "monthly sanitation" usually carried out by other serious minded environmental sanitation boards across the globe, would have gone a long way in eliminating this current issue if the vuvuleza government of Lagos had really bothered to take it seriously.
Markets wouldn't need to be shut in the first place if sanitation workers did their jobs of cleaning the place as and when due. There's a reason market taxes and levies exist, and they're not just for stomachs.
Your remark about laying in stealth and "CATCHING people who throw dirt in canals", suggests you know little to nothing about the duties of a sanitation agency. Please, environmental sanitation is not a paramilitary affair.

And finally, my state governor is unimportant to the discussion at hand, as I fail to see where in the post he was mentioned or how my criticism of Fashola should automatically translate to an underhanded endorsement of my state governor. For all we know, I could consider them BOTH failures. Where would that leave you and your argument?


Cuz guess what? This is my state governor:

One day a month is sufficient to clean tons of garbage generated in 29 days? You should know better that mega cities struggle with waste management,even New York.
No other state of the federation handles her waste like lagos does

Mega cities struggle with dirt, but Lagos state's cases are mostly avoidable.
In those megacities, the dirt is mostly from the public waste around the city centres. In Lagos, even the suburbs and mid-density housing estates are loaded with dirt and greeted by very avoidable floods caused by waste products.
Take a little trip around Ago Palace and come tell us how many waste disposal bins you're able to see there.
It's time to face the truth.

Your residents need to be more responsible and stop throwing garbage in the drains and canals. Looking at the pictures, it is obvious what the problem is.

No.
But since the government has made it a point of duty to never miss tax collection, it must also hold up to it's responsibility of dirt collection.
