The Lagos State Parks and Gardens Agency (LASPARK) has commended some corporate organizations for their involvement in the greening project initiated by the state government.
LASPARK said that it is a welcome development that the organised private sector is accepting to beautify and maintain some strategic locations within the state.
Its General Manager, Mrs. Bilikiss Adebiyi-Abiola, gave the commendation on Wednesday and added that the beautification and greening projects has begun to gain significance.
Adebiyi-Abiola disclosed that no less than 40 corporate institutions are ready to invest in the management of several open places across the state at no cost to the state government.
According to her, they will bequeath a greener and sustainable environment for the overall progress of the state and the wellbeing of the citizenry.
Adebiyi-Abiola said Guinea Insurance Plc had also adopted to beautify a portion under Jibowu Bridge including Jibowu Recreational Park, Yaba.
According to her, the adventure toward an enterprising and smart society is fast becoming a reality.
Adebiyi-Abiola said that the public-private synergy remained the most veritable platform for creating an enduring investment in the greening project.
She encouraged other corporate establishments to align with LASPARK in order to achieve wider coverage and at the same time boost their returns on investment.
Adebiyi-Abiola noted that such collaborative effort would go a long way in achieving the overall objective of the state government in mitigating the effect of climate change and its attendant global warming.
