An environmentalist, Frank Saer, has emphasized the need for both the states and federal government to ensure proper management and maintenance of beaches across the country.

The environmental expert, who noted that coastal erosion and flooding have become a major concern across the globe, remarked that Lekki Beach has a great and untapped potential for further development of the Lekki-Epe area.

“There has been increase in the growth of real estate sector along the Lekki-Epe axis. Value and wealth have been created in unprecedented way and the full potential is yet to be accomplished.”

Saer said it was important to have a long term plan and approach to safeguarding and consolidating the results of this development.

The chairman of Nigeria Environmental Society, Lagos Island chapter, John Ekoko, also said that the 2015 World Environmental Day, was a call for action on the environment, noting that it was time for governments, corporate organisations and individuals to consider the environment in whatever actions they were taking to sustain life on earth.
