Good Morning Sir, the information stated was not true Sir. The Environmental Services Department inspected the site of the said Toilet, gives necessary advice and informations based on the renovation of a modern Toilet. We personally visited the site and advice Lions Club to also go to LASPARK Agency for final approval because the Garden in question is under the supervision of Lagos State Parks and Garden Agency and without approval from LASPARK May cause delay and may be demolished by LASPARK. We wonder why they now criticize Kosofe local government Environmental Services for Approval. Thank you Sir..
Further investigations revealed that the concerned Ministry, Departments and agencies has now shown signal to provide the necessary documents for the continuation of the structure.
