The new Oniru of Iruland, HRM Oba Abdulwasiu Omogbolahan Lawal who had his coronation a few days back has revealed his agenda for Iruland. They are 12 in number, as follows:
IMPROVED ROADS & DRAINS
Consultants are reviewing the entire estate from a topographical and distribution viewpoint to reduce flooding and improve roads.
IMPROVED POWER SUPPLY
A power company is currently being engaged with a view to providing power within the estate for a minimum of 23 hours daily.
To improve security and create a more pleasing estate for pedestrians, an aggressive street lighting project has commenced.
Waste disposal is a major issue in Lagos as a whole. We are critically looking into a recycling alternative for the estate.
IMPROVED SECURITY & ACCESS CONTROL
Safety of lives and property is key. Best practices in other estates worldwide are being critically reviewed, to activate the best model for Oniru estate.
PHYSICAL PLANNING CONTROL
It has been noticed that a lot of developments have flouted simple planning regulations thereby creating discomfort for neighbours and defacing the estate. Consultations are ongoing for improved and enforceable regulations for the benefit of all.
UPDATE OF TITLES
Data on title documents/deeds to be centrally collated at a Central Estate Management office.
Ease of payment of ground rent/development levy to be introduced.
TRAFFIC CONTROL/ROAD MANAGEMENT
Traffic flow strategy to be created for bottle-necks such as the entry from new martket road and Ozumba Mbadiwe. Separate weekend arrangements to be made for the water-front event center zone and the alternative access road.
TECHNOLOGICALLY COMPLIANT ESTATE
Plans are underway to engage service providers for broadband internet services within the estate.
ECO FRIENDLY & FAMILY FRIENDLY ENVIRONMENT
The Oniru waterfront is set for a change. We must create a healthy family friendly environment for all.
A tree planting campaign will be commenced by HRM in Sept. 2020.
ADEQUATE WATER SUPPLY
Adequate water supply to ensure consistent maintenance of cleanliness and greenery of the environment will be prioritised.
