Lagos will invest in more impactful projects – Sanwo-Olu

The Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has promised citizens that his administration will continue to invest in more projects that will ensure environmental sustainability.

Sanwo-Olu, who was represented by the Commissioner for the Environment and Water Resources, Mr Tunji Bello, stated this on Friday during the inauguration of the ultra-modern laboratory at the Lagos State Environmental Protection Agency in Alausa, Ikeja.

He said, “This accreditation has given Lagos State global recognition and acceptance as results generated from this laboratory are consistent and accurate through industry-standard protocols and in line with best practices obtainable worldwide.

“Our administration will continue to invest in projects that are consistent with our goal of ensuring a healthy, safe and sustainable environment and we look forward to a more purpose-driven partnership with local and international bodies, academic institutions, researchers and non-governmental organisations.”

LASEPA’s General Manager, Dr Dolapo Fasawe, explained that the laboratory was upgraded by Sanwo-Olu’s administration.

“The laboratory complex was constructed 32 years ago as a pollution control laboratory under the governance of Raji Rasaki, a retired Brigadier General who was the then military governor of Lagos State.

“The lab, which was upgraded through carefully designed work, now has state-of-the-art environmental laboratory equipment and engineering processes according to International Standards Organisations and best practices,” she said.
