Yuletide: Lagos Agency Urges Private Sector Cooperation

Bilikiss Adebiyi-Abiola, the General Manager of the Lagos State Parks and Gardens Agency, LASPARK, has urged corporate bodies, including those she called “Green Partners” to support the government’s Christmas decorations by beautifying and lighting up designated sites. She said this at a meeting with some corporate bodies.

Adebiyi-Abiola urged other corporate bodies to embrace the project as part of their Corporate Social Responsibility.

“One mitigating measure against the adverse effect of climate change and global warming is to increase the green cover immensely and this can only be achieved through conscious, intensive and aggressive landscaping, beautification and tree planting activities which our partners have keyed into”, she said.

“Your immeasurable financial and material contributions in nurturing and keeping the adopted sites green and clean cannot be overemphasized. I enjoin you to do more so that we can bequeath an enviable environment to the generation yet unborn,” she added.
