Lagosians applaud Ambode’s cleaner Lagos policy — but it’s not what you think


The Cleaner Lagos Initiative (CLI) of the Akinwumi Ambode administration has been controversial since its take-off mid last year, with many saying the policy has achieved the exact opposite of what it was originally intended to achieve.

While majority of the citizens accuse the state government of insincerity — for handing the CLI project to an incompetent contractor — the government claims some unscrupulous individuals are sabotaging its efforts.

So the citizens decided to take matters into their own hands by sharing pictures of how dirty the city of Lagos has become as a result of the cleaner Lagos initiative.

“How about we all post pictures of how dirty Lagos has been since the Cleaner Lagos thingy started and tag Ambode to it and use the hash tag #CleanerLagos,” wrote a Twitter user with the handle, ‘Portrait Artist’.

And so begun the social media protest laced with some doses of sarcasm.
