Lagos To Redevelop Blighted Areas

Lagos State Government through the Lagos Metropolitan Development and Governance Project (LMDPG) is set to empower and give residents of blighted areas a chance to live a good and decent life.

Speaking at the award ceremony of the “Keep our Environment Clean Campaign”, organised LMDPG, the Lagos State Governor, Babatunde Fashola reiterated his administration commitment to the provision of modern facilities and infrastructure in the identified communities.

According to him, the proposed facilities includes: roads, upgrading of the existing public schools, primary health care centres, water boreholes and recreational facilities, among others.

He stated that, while some governments respond to blighted areas by deploying bulldozers to erase such settlements, Lagos has adopted a redevelopment posture, through LMDGP which has made the state proud with infrastructural upgrade in places like Ajegunle, Amukoko, Orile, Badiya, Ilaje, Itire- ijesha.
