The Lagos state Government has commenced the move to re- orientate members of the Kick Against Indiscipline brigades to meet the demands of the on-going waste management reforms in Lagos State, also called the Cleaner Lagos Initiative.
During a reorientation meeting in Alausa, recently, the Commissioner for the Environment, Dr. Babatunde Adejare urged members of the brigade to brace up for the unfolding change as dictated by the waste management reforms in the State.
To fit into the envisaged enforcement role, Dr. Adejare hinted that the Brigade would be renamed, rebranded and retooled to meet the demand of enforcing compliance of environmental laws in the Lagos megacity.
He urged members of the KAI Brigade to be up and doing so as to fit in to the new roles which they would soon assume, stressing there was need to maintain discipline, mental and physical fitness as well integrity as they are the representatives of the state government.
He enjoined them to familiarise themselves with their rules of engagement by getting more acquainted with the civil service rules.
He stated that the state government would soon sign into law the harmonized environmental bill passed by the state house of assembly to provide for the management, protection and sustainable development of the environment in Lagos State.
