LAGOS State government said on Thursday that it has commenced assessment of public infrastructures such as schools, hospitals, public buildings and MDAs across the state towards the formulation of a strategic and economic reinvestment plan.
Infrastructure Assets Management Agency (LASIAMA) said this in a release made available by its Public Affairs Department, saying the assessment would determine the current condition and level of maintenance of assets to enable the government prioritise maintenance as well as draw up an appropriate budget to fund the reinvestment plan.
The release revealed that the assessment of public schools, which had already taken place at Low-Cost Estate Nursery and Primary School, Jakande Estate, Oke Afa, Lagos would be conducted by a team of engineers from LASIAMA in collaboration with the Ministry of Education.
“LASIAMA has also engaged other technical staff to provide employment for residents in the affected communities during the assessment of public buildings” the agency said.
It called on the general public to call 09052236539 and provide information on any damaged public infrastructure requiring government intervention.
It would be recalled that the enabling law for Lagos State Infrastructure and Assets Management Agency (LASIAMA) was passed by the Lagos State House of Assembly in 2014 to create better management solutions for public facilities, improve cost efficiency as well as establish a system for regular maintenance and refurbishment of assets for better service delivery.
