Lagos state government and Private Sector Participation (PSP) waste operators have agreed to resolve an ongoing dispute linked to a new waste management policy.

Implementation of Cleaner Lagos Initiative (CLI), the new waste policy had let to dissension between both parties, leading to a suit before a Lagos high court in Igbosere.

CLI was established to “address, enforce and regulate the challenges in the solid waste management systems within the state in line with global best practices”.

A statement signed by Kayode Oyekanmi, assistant director, Lagos ministry of justice, revealed that the PSP operators had sued the state government and Visionscape Group, an environmental utility group that had been chosen to implement the CLI.

The PSP operators had argued that Lagos state’s decision to involve a new contractor for waste disposal went against previously held agreements.

During a court session on Wednesday however, Tosin Adesioye, counsel to the PSP operators told Oyekan Abdullahi, the presiding judge the court, that his clients were ready to settle the dispute and asked for additional time to perfect the terms of settlement.

In his response, Saheed Quadri, counsel to Lagos government, reaffirmed the state’s readiness to resolve the dispute and requested for a short recess for both parties to conclude the settlement procedure.

Abdullahi in his ruling, commended both counsels for the role they played in seeking a peaceful resolution to the case.

“I want to commend all the counsel in this matter for their individual and collective efforts,” he said.

“I can confirm seeing the progress made so far and I want to appreciate all the parties involved in the settlement process.

“It is my hope that the team of legal minds in this suit will be in touch with one another.”

The case has been adjourned to January 29 for the final terms of settlement.
