By OLASUNKANMI AKONI
THE Lagos State Waste Management Authority, LAWMA, has raised an alarm over imminent flood disaster in Ajah communities following indiscriminate dumping of refuse in drainage as well as road medians.
It will be recalled that the Nigerian Meteorological Agency, NIMET and relevant authorities of the state government, had predicted a high prospect of intense rains to be accompanied by heavy flooding after the August break.
LAWMA Managing Director, Mr. Ola Oresanya, through the public relations department, decried the fact that residents of Ajah were not supportive of the state government efforts to ensure that every community in the state is clean as well as protect lives and properties of citizenry.
According to LAWMA: 'Ajah residents, especially those of Thomas, Ilasan and Abraham Adesanya Estates are not paying for services rendered by Private Sector Participant, PSP, operators and waste management is not free anywhere in the world.
