Lagos State Governor, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu, yesterday, restated his administration’s commitment to collaborate with communities on provision of infrastructure and security to ensure safety of life and property, especially during the Yuletide seasons.

The governor thanked the Community Development Associations (CDAs), which had over time increased to 4,100, assuring them that developmental projects were ongoing in all the 377 wards across the state.
He listed some of the developmental projects embarked on by the administration to include roads, provision of healthcare facilities and nearly completed Imota Rice Mill, among others.
Meanwhile, Tangerine Africa, a leading financial services company leading the way in designing financial tools and services that are accessible to everyone, has partnered with a youth-led Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO), African Steel Mill, which through its Evergreen Project( ASTEP), yesterday launched the planting of 1,000 trees across Lagos State.
The event was graced by Sanwo-Olu, Lagos State Commissioner for the Environment, Mr. Tunji Bello and other dignitaries from across the state.
The governor, in his remarks, commended the initiative, stating the importance of tree planting in the environment.
He urged the people to change their mindset by preserving their environment, pushing and encouraging similar laudable initiatives.
