….as Government & Youth bodies embark on SDG Goal-6
In commemoration of the 2022 World Clean-Up Day, aimed to combat waste challenges in every community, the man at the helm of affairs in Somolu Local Government, Hon. Abdul Hamed Salawu, has advocated for a healthy environment that all will be proud of.
The Executive Chairman of Somolu Local Government, Hon. Abdul Hamed Salawu, who was astonished by the even cooperation of all partakers in the annual social actions for this year, has called for effective cleanliness of the environment, for the health benefit of all.
Recall that prior to the 2021 Environmental Sensitisation program, held at the erstwhile banquet hall of the Council Secretariat and which had in attendance, Mr. Ibrahim Adejuwon Odumboni (Director/CEO, Lagos Waste Management Authority, LAWMA), Sanitarian Ogunbekun led-Environment & Health Services Department, alongside other stakeholders within.
Recall that, Hon.

To that consistent effect, the Council Chairman commended the discharged efforts of every individual for giving back to society. Furthermore, he urged the citizens to always dispose of their wastes appropriately and to comply with the environmental bodies, so as to keep the community clean and healthy for a better living.
