“The intention is to bring together 25 forward-looking companies like GOKADA , who are each committed to planting at least 100,000 trees in support of the Agency’s effort on or before the year 2020,” she said.
Adegbola said: “This partnership will foster the reduction of atmospheric carbon concentration and flooding. It will also improve the quality of life of Lagosians, for whom we work tirelessly to provide safer and faster intra-city transportation.”
