While announcing the cancellation, the Commissioner for Environment, Tunji Bello said the cancellation is to enable residents of the state participate fully in all activities lined up to celebrate the inauguration of the president-elect Muhammadu Buhari and the Lagos state governor elect, Akinwunmi Ambode.
“The Lagos State Government has cancelled restriction of human and vehicular activities during the May monthly sanitation coming up this Saturday as the state prepares for the swearing-in/inauguration ceremony of the new governor. This cancellation is to allow for a hitch-free swearing-in and inauguration coming up both in Lagos and Abuja. The restriction of movement was lifted in order to allow full participation of our people during the state and national inauguration ceremonies. The restriction of movement was lifted to also allow easy transportation of fuel from the various tank farms from Lagos to other parts of the nation, as well as allow normalcy to return to our roads. The next edition of the cleaning exercise will come up in June.”he said
