The Lagos Citizens’ Mediation Centre has temporarily relocated its Head Office from Motorways Centre to the State Secretariat in Alausa due to the health risks posed by the emission from smoke that has engulfed the Olushosun dumpsite following a recent fire outbreak at the location.
The Director of the Centre, Mrs. Oluwatoyin Odusanya noted that the Centre is undaunted in discharging its primary responsibilities to the residents of Lagos State despite the challenge of the emissions having permeated its offices, making it unconducive for work.
She stated that though the emission is harmful to the health of its staff and clients, the government business cannot stop as it has a responsibility to render necessary service to the general public.
Odusanya noted that presently, the CMC occupies the portacabins directly opposite the Ministry of Justice where members of the public are being attended to, as notices have been placed at the Motorways Centre to notify the public about the latest development.
She further stated that the temporary movement was a proactive measure to forestall any medical incident that might result from the emission and thanked members of the public for their support, understanding and sustained patronage despite the change of location.
