It was joy, dancing and excitement as Seyi Tinubu, a Nigerian Media Practitioner, Founder of Noella Foundation and the CEO & Cofounder Loatsad Promomedia, handed out palliatives to sweepers with the Lagos State Waste Management Agency, LAWMA.
Seyi Tinubu, who is the son of the national leader of the All Progressive Congress, APC, in recognition of the efforts of these sweepers who have defiled the odds and in the face of the growing pandemic continued their duties of keeping the state clean, decided to compensate and encourage them.
LAWMA, an essential service provider and all its workers, sweepers, waste collectors, e.t.c., were mandated to continue their daily duties of keeping the state clean
While the state compulsorily remains on lock-down, sweepers are daily on the road carrying out their duties, an act that has caught the attention of many.
For the sweepers, it was pure joy, not just because of the package received from Tinubu, but also because people really recognize and appreciate their contributions towards the safety of the state.
They were full of appreciations to Tinubu for his kindheartedness and also to the management of LAWMA for all the support and care they have received so far.
In his reaction, the Managing Director of LAWMA, Dr. Muyiwa Gbadegesin said the gesture of Seyi Tinubu is commendable and well appreciated.
He said LAWMA will continue to maintain the standard and ensure that all its workers are well equipped to perform their duties.
Dr. Gbadegesin urged residents of the state to continue to support the agency in whatever capacity they are able to, as this will go a long way to boost service delivery of the agency.
