The members of the Lagos State House of Assembly will cut short their break and reconvene on Monday to deliberate on the Lagos State Harmonised Environmental Bill sent to the Assembly by the Executive.
A statement on Wednesday said the lawmakers were supposed to resume from their six-week break on February 28, 2017, but had to return to work because of the importance of the bill.
The Chairman of the Assembly Committee on Information, Strategy and Security, Tunde Buraimo, who signed the statement, said, “We are all committed to ensuring good governance and this bill, which is aimed at improving the lives of our people, deserves our attention. Hence, we have no choice but to cut short our break and do the job.”
He explained that the bill sought to create a single control body for all environmental agencies in the state for the purpose of resolving areas of conflict, as well as encouraging synergy among the agencies.
