Lagos State Government yesterday, gave reason why it is yet to record any conviction from noise pollution being perpetrated by the religious organizations in the state.
Commissioner for Environment and Water Resources, Mr. Tunji Bello revealed this while answering questions bordering on noise pollution at ministerial press briefing organised to commemorate second year in office of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu.
Bello said anything bordering on religion is always a sensitive issue and care has to be taken in order not create a bigger problem as solution to a minor issue that can be amicable resolved between parties.
He said that religious organizations had been cut in the act of noise pollution in various communities across the state but instead of prosecuting organizations for violating the law, the government rather issues warning, dialogue with the culprits and if there is no changes, sanction would be the last option.
Bello in giving account of Sanwo-Olu’s led administration scorecard, in area of environment and water resources emphasised that Lagos State has moved from the notoriety of a flood ravaged coastal city to one with cleaned, dredged and free flowing drainage channels all year round.
