The Chairman assured Lagosians that the activities and operations carried out by the State Government are in the best interest of the citizenry who deserve to live in a safe, serene and habitable environment.

“Shanties are breeding place for criminal elements who come out at night to rob and destroy, therefore they have no place in a Metropolitan City like Lagos.

“We will ensure that there is no more breeding ground for criminals to run to and by so doing, reduce criminality in the State to the barest minimum”, he stated.
