Lagos State governor, Mr Akinwunmi Ambode yesterday, commenced the process of ridding the state’s waterways of debris and hyacinth.

 Speaking at the commissioning of two Water Hyacinth and Debris Removal Machines held at Ebute Ero Jetty, the governor said the process would boost water transportation and positively scale up activities relating to the waterways.

 The governor explained that for a long time, hyacinth which is otherwise known as aquatic weed, had been a major source of concern with attendant challenges to the waterways sector.

 Ambode, who was represented by the commissioner for the Environment, Dr. Babatunde Adejare, said the machines were purchased by his administration to frontally address the challenges posed by water hyacinth, adding that this was in line with the strategic implementation of Lagos master plan for the waterways.
