The Lagos Waste Management Authority (LAWMA) has launched a mobile app to enable Lagos State residents track waste disposal operations across the state, a public notice from the Special Assistant to Lagos State Governor on Media has confirmed.
The Special Assistant, Wale Ajetunmobi, revealed this through his twitter handle, @Riddwane, urging the public to consider downloading the App from Google Playstore in order to explore the digital facility.
Although, according to information gathered from the App’s property page, the product has been uploaded over a year to the Google Playstore without attracting much attention.
There are concerns from critics probing why a government agency had spent such a long time to unveil a product intended to ease operations and enhance how residents communicate with waste management agency.
Speculations are that, perhaps, LAWMA had been working on developing the App to what it is today by fixing bugs and redesigning the outlook. Or, that, maybe, the project had suffered neglect, which had fast become a common characteristics of Nigerian government parastatals.
The App, according to listed features helps find nearest points of waste operators, ease communication between residents and the agency while supporting users with useful information on emerging developments in the waste management space.
