“The Lagos state government is irresponsible” were the outcry of nollywood actress and movie producer now turned politician Funke Akindele as she blows hot over flood situations in Lagos state.
Funke Akindele who is set to contest at the gubernatorial election in the state come 2023 has called out the Lagos state government over the recent flood scare.
In her statement “After speaking with people in several wards across the state, I feel compelled to share my concern about the safety of Lagosians in all areas of the state”
“The Lagos state government put out a flood
warning for several parts of the state but it is yet to announce a state of emergency or share a detailed response plan in the event that flooding endangers the lives of citizens.
“The fact that lagos state has not declared a state of emergency, especially in the riverine communities, is extremely irresponsible & puts so many Lagosians at risk”
“Our riverine communities do not have functional gutters, flood canals built to channel flood water are filled with silt & blocked by refuse and our water ways are overrun by water hyacinths. It is a disaster waiting to happen” she opened up.
