Clearing Of Water Hyacinth On Ikorodu Water Terminal Begins by AutoReportNG: 6:50pm On Oct 11, 2019
It was earlier reported today that water hyacinth has taken over the Ikorodu Water Terminal which makes it difficult to boats to navigate the waters.

We have it on good authority that the Lagos State Government through the Lagos State Waterways Authority (LASWA) has commenced clearing of the water hyacinth. Pegging of the ferry route channel commenced last week and manual clearing has already started at the Ipakodo terminal also called Ikorodu Terminal.

If this happened in Imo, Ihedioha would blame Okorocha for the growth of the weeds.

If na Abia, Ikpeazu would give Abians kerosene to drink. Hungry Abians would then deny that there are no weeds there.

If it were in Enugu, Ugwuanyi would get to the river bank and start crying.

In Ebonyi, Umahi would employ 4 labourers to cut the weeds and appoint 23 Special Assistants and 15 Senior Special Assistants over the "project".

If in Anambra, Obiano would print his face on Ankara, wear the Ankara to the site, pluck a single leaf, sign an MOU. By tomorrow, you would see a big signboard of "Willie is Working".

Just because it is called waterways doesn't mean that it is water that is clean enough. Look at that man that is almost submerged in it, I hope he remembers to take antibiotics.

Ok, there should be a modern way of clearing water Hyacinth instead of manual approach.
Lagos is too big for this manual approach.

They need to adopt a more strategic approach. The hyacinth are seasonal. So it is better to find the seeds after this exercise
