The Greater Lagos Youths (GLY), an amalgam of over 60 youth groups drawn from across the 57 local government and Local council development areas of Lagos state has condemned a coordinated smear campaign launched against Visionscape Sanitation Solutions on the social media.

Greater Lagos Youths maintains that the plot to undermine the efforts of Visionscape to fulfil its part, in delivering a cleaner Lagos, will fail.

In a statement signed by its National President, Kayode Gbadamosi, GLY says its “attention has been drawn to the latest campaign of blackmail and calumny against Visionscape Sanitation Solutions by disgruntled elements and agents of destabilisation who on realising the futility of their previous actions of sabotaging the credibility of the organization with regards to waste management in Lagos State, have come up once again with this latest smear campaign.”

The group says “while the anti Visionscape Sanitation Solutions interests continued to grope in the dark, they exposed their ignorance and churned out lies and falsehood about the competence and long standing record of Visionscape Sanitation Solutions and it’s directors by the ignorant and mischief laden sinister campaign.”

GLY further affirms that Visionscape is a trusted environmental company which was beginning to earn the confidence of Lagosians.

“Let it be placed on record that Greater Lagos Youths (GLY) and millions of ever conscious and progressive Lagosians, have absolute confidence in Visionscape Sanitation Solutions as a tested and trusted environmental concern which has proved its mettle in its area of competence in other countries across the globe.

“Notwithstanding the campaign of blackmail and calumny, the good people and government of Lagos State are committed to entrusting our utmost confidence in Visionscape Sanitation Solutions, as we witness a breath of fresh air in the waste management system through the transformation of waste transfer loading stations across the state, beginning with the Tapa Transfer Loading Station; the one in Oshodi is nearing completion; the Ogudu Waste Depot has been completed and they are currently working on Epe Landfill which will be the first Engineered Sanitary Landfill in West Africa, among others.

“No matter the satanic plots to undermine Visionscape Sanitation Solutions in its responsibility to the environmental upgrade of Lagos to a clean mega city, we the people have no reason whatsoever to doubt the competence of the organization based on it’s track record and results being achieved on ground of which we are all living witness despite sabotage and other negative actions by disgruntled elements.

“Therefore, we at Greater Lagos Youths (GLY) commend Visionscape Sanitation Solutions for taking giant strides to align Lagos state with the rest of the world in waste management system and affirm our unalloyed confidence and support to it in restoring the environmental sanity of Lagos state and state unequivocally that this campaign of blackmail and calumny cannot and will not stand,” GLY says.

N65,000 Minimum Wage: Labour Begins Nationwide Strike Thursday



The organised labour has served to warn of an imminent nationwide strike which will kick off on Thursday over Federal Government delay in the implementation of a new National Minimum Wage.

Mr Joe Ajaero, President, United Labour Congress (ULC) gave the warning in a communique issued after its meeting on Monday in Lagos.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) recalls that the organised labour, made up of the NLC, TUC and ULC had on Sept. 12 issued a 14-day ultimatum to the government to state an amount to enable the minimum wage committee to conclude its sitting.

Labour had collectively demanded for N65,000 per month as the new National Minimum wage for all Nigerian workers as harmonised by organised Labour.

Ajaero said that if the government failed to meet their demand on the expiration of the ultimatum, it would collaborate with other labour centres and Civil Society Organisations to embark on a nation-wide strike.

”We shall no longer be obliged by this time to give any further notice to the government before embarking on the action.

”By this communiqué, we order all our affiliates and state councils nation-wide to move to the final level of alert in their preparation for the proposed nationwide strike,” he said.

The labour leader said that a new national minimum wage was desirable and possible, adding that lack of patriotism, greed and corruption was the bane of a reasonable wage.

Meanwhile, the Central Working Committee (CWC) of the Trade Union Congress of Nigeria (TUC) has empowered the National Administrative Council (NAC) and its leadership to carry out all necessary actions in conjunction with other stakeholders to ensure the achievement of the minimum wage. (NAN)
