The Chairman of Egbe-Idimu Local Council Development Area, Hon. Kunle Sanyaolu Oloowopejo has urged residents in the area to abide by the council’s bye-laws.
He said this during the just-concluded public hearing of local government bye-laws of Egbe Idimu LCDA held on Tuesday.
During the hearing, the proposed bye-laws of the LCDA and adherence to the law were discussed, with many in agreement that the development of any community hinged on adherence to laid-down laws.
He explained that a lot of the laws made, especially the environmental laws, were being breached at will, hence the need for laws prescribing punishment for those who breach them.
“When there is no law, there is no sin. A lot of laws especially environmental laws are being breached at will and without bye-laws, we will not be able to prosecute people that breach our laws,” the council boss said.
According to him, the bye-laws will control and check the people who contravene environmental laws indiscriminately.
Olowoopejo said, “With the bye-laws, we can control and check the people that contravene our environmental laws and some other laws indiscriminately, just to curb them and have a kind of punishment for anybody that breaches any of our laws.”
The stakeholders in their responses were appreciative and welcomed the new development with positive reaction and emphasis on the need to abide by these laws in order to avoid payment of fines when the laws are broken.
