But Visionscape was caught up in the political web in the state, making it the first casualty in the power play in Lagos State.

But in Ladipo Auto spare market, traders have resorted burning refuses to reduce the heap of dirt in the market after waiting in vain for several weeks for Visionscape to pack the refuse in the area.

Recall that the Lagos State governor, last week backtracked and engaged 400 Private Sector Partnership (PSP) operators in new deal to work out modality of waste collection and disposal in a new deal aimed at restoring healthy environment as well as eliminate possible health hazards in the state.

The move by the governor, followed earlier directive by the State House of Assembly for PSP, to resume collection and disposal of waste.

The traders alleged that Governor Ambode had abandoned governance in Lagos after losing a second term bid ticket to Sanwo-Olu and there was nothing they can do than to burn the refuse blocking the drainage and spilling to the road.
