Recall that hundreds of street sweepers engaged by Visionscape, the firm engaged by the Lagos State government to manage waste collection, stormed Governor Akinwunmi Ambode’s office, narrating their ordeals in the hand of the firm.
In a statement by the CEO of VSS, John Irvine said: ”Enquiries regarding the community sanitation workers must be directed to the Ministry of Environment / Public Utility Monitoring Assurance Unit, PUMAU.
“Visionscape continues to guarantee the complete safety and security of its employees with the highest levels of protection and equipment. We remain committed to working with all stakeholders as we carry out our respective roles and responsibilities and will continue to support the Cleaner Lagos Initiative.”

Meanwhile, the ADP, in a statement by its Publicity Secretary, Lagos State, Adelaja Adeoye, said: “Since Visionscape came on board, dirt has littered the entire state while their workers are being owed several months of salaries, with no payment of hazard allowance, or provision of basic working tools and other benefits.”
