Lagos State Bans Cart Pushers And Wheel Barrow Operators From Streets+ Reasons

The Lagos State Government on Saturday announced a total ban on the operations of cart pushers and wheel barrow operators in the State, saying that their activities were inimical to the environmental cleanliness in the State.

In a statement signed by the Secretary to the State Government (SSG), Mr. Tunji Bello, the State Government said that with the flag off of the Cleaner Lagos Initiative (CLI), the continuous activities of cart pushers will pose a threat to the success of the initiative.

Bello said that investigations had also revealed that the cart pushers are responsible for most of the illegal dumping of waste in canals and road medians at night which causes flooding, adding that aside constituting environmental nuisance, they were also traces of security threats. They use those carts to hide arms and ammunitions and hide under the guise of carrying refuse to rob unsuspecting residents.

The law also applies to residents who patronise cart pushers. It is an offence and the State Government would not hesitate to enforce the law to put a stop to such practice.


  1. Akuko! What happened to the ban on hawking? They should just go and sit down because Lagos na gra gra town, lol

  2. Clueless governor, Fashola had banned them but he reversed all his policies. Lagos is so dirty now. I pity people lol bing at Ojota and Ogudu. The dump site smells like hell.

  3. Nice one but hope their trucks will maintain carrying people's wastes frequently to avoid environmental pollution.

  4. Vry true some of them do pour trashes on the road or close to peoples residence early in the morning when they ar sure no one is seeing them...
