As a major aspect of internal changes supported by the new Environmental Management and Protection Bill, go by the Lagos State House of Assembly, KAI (Kick Against Indiscipline) will be changed into the Lagos State Environmental Sanitation Corps Agency which will initiate authorization of the stringent punishments forced on defaulters.
The office will be entrusted with observing and keeping up observation along the expressways, avenues and open seepages, channels, markets and stops and will have the essential obligation of guaranteeing that citizens satisfy their obligation by paying the Public Utilities Levy-a property-based charge, payable by property tenants for the administration of strong and fluid waste, wastewater and natural mediation for Lagos State.
Talking at the marking of the new Environmental Bill a week ago Wednesday, His Excellency Gov. Akinwunmi Ambode said "Consistence is the key. The weight of the cost of giving these administrations will stay low if everybody does their part and pays their Public Utilities Levy.
"The cash will be held in the Environmental Trust Fund and oversaw fastidiously by a Board of free, SEC directed trustees".
LASECORPS's execution assessments and compensation will be attached straightforwardly to the quantity of significant fines they issue for resistance. The Environmental Corps will be bolstered by PUMAU (Public Utilities Monitoring Assurance Unit) a unit that will have oversight duty by utilizing imaginative checking devices to guarantee the new principles are viably upheld.
