The Lagos State Government has ordered all home owners in Lagos, Southwest Nigeria to beautify the perimeter areas of their properties with flowers or face six months imprisonment.
This is as a result of the new Lagos State Parks and Garden bill which has already been passed by the State House of Assembly.
An agency that will implement the law, the Lagos State Parks and Gardens Agency, LASPARK, was inaugurated on Monday in Lagos, Southwest Nigeria to manage all the parks in Lagos and enforce the law.
A violation of this would attract N250, 000 or the amount the state would incur if it decides to carry out the beautification, or six months imprisonment or other non-custodian sentences…also anyone caught felling trees in the state or trimming them without permission would be fined a minimum of N50, 000 or sent to one year imprisonment. So Lagosians start planting flowers, trees and make sure you do not defecate or urinate on them because it also attacks penalty
