Lagos Govt. covers 1,300km across state with street lights in 3yrs

The Lagos State Government has so far effectively installed street lighting in about 1300kilometres across the State, with a projection to deliver another 82kilometres by the end of the year, Commissioner for Energy and Mineral Resources, Mr Olawale Oluwo has said.

Speaking to journalists while inspecting ongoing projects in the sector with his team on Sunday, Oluwo said since the assumption of office of the State Governor, Mr Akinwunmi Ambode, concerted efforts have been made to ensure that every nook and cranny of the State is well lit in line with operation ‘Light Up Lagos Project,’ which is an initiative of the present administration.

The Light Up Project, according to Oluwo, is predicated on a tripod of street lighting, rural/community electrification and embedded power programme, adding that it was gratifying to note that all the components of the initiative were progressing well.
