Inner Street Gates Removal In Lekki, In Larger Interest Of All Residents --Wahab

Lagos Commissioner for the Environment and Water Resources Tokunbo Wahab on Tuesday told members of the Lekki Residents Association that the decision to remove inner street gates in Lekki 1 was taken in the larger interest of all residents of the state.

Tokunbo Wahab who spoke at a meeting convened by his transport counterpart, Mr Oluwaseun Oshiyemi at Alausa, said it was a very painful decision which was taken because the State Government had the responsibility to regulate operations at Lekki 1 which is a government scheme.

Saying the action was regrettable, Wahab said all the removed gates are intact and would be returned to the various zones of the residents association immediately after an agreement is reached on modalities for re-installing the gates.

He reiterated that part of the agreement must include a proviso that the gates cannot be shut before 12 midnight and must have personnel manning them to ensure seamless entry and exit for all residents.
