It is indeed a well deserved honour because the commissioner had been at the forefront of keeping our ocean and waterfront safe for all Lagosians. He has selflessly with the utmost support of the Lagos State government done brilliantly well with his portfolio in the cabinent. And lastly, our theme for this year isYear of water cooperation, so who else would have aptly fit for the honour aside him?"
In his words, the commissioner was all smiles but also took time to explain that Lagosians need to abide with the instructions of the state and ministry when announcements are made on TV and radio because if the coastline isn't protected, it might spell doom for everyone.
