Relocation of Tank Farms from Amuwo Odofin Ruled out – House of Reps

The House of Representatives Ad-hoc Committee on Tank Farms has ruled out plans to relocate the farms in Satellite Town, Kirikiri and Ijegun-Egba communities in Lagos State to another area within the state.

Speaking recently at a town hall meeting in Lagos, the Chairman, House Ad-hoc Committee, Sergius Ogun, said there are obvious questions that the House needed to put before the approving agencies in regards to the issue undercover.

According to Inside Mainland report, Ogun claimed that the tank operators have explained that they have done so much for the areas, stressing that the communities wanted more Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) activities.

The chairman noted that the committee has informed the operators to present what they had done so far as CSR, stressing that it will also engage the state government over the matter.

The committee therefore urged all stakeholders, including operators, regulatory agencies and host communities, to continue to engage themselves harmoniously in order to find common ground and solution to the crisis in the area
