Lagos State Governor, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode on Monday restated the government’s resolve to enforce relevant regulations on noise pollution in the state.

He made the remarks when the MTN Foundation distributed 250 hearing aid devices to beneficiaries in the state, including children less than one year old.

The Governor who was represented by his Special Adviser on Primary Health, Dr. Femi Onanuga, stressed that no individual or corporate organisation would be spared in government’s renewed onslaught against defaulters.

He urged the 250 beneficiaries of the MTN Foundation Hearing Aid support project in Lagos State to join the campaign against noise pollution in the society.

It is the first phase of MTN Hearing Aid Support Project, during which 1,500 devices will be distributed to hard-of-hearing persons in six states of the country.

Also speaking, Wife of the Governor, Mrs. Bolanle Ambode, described MTN as a company with a high sense of commitment to the execution of corporate social responsibility.

Handing the device to some beneficiaries, Mrs. Ambode said, “All these years, the company has maintained a clear lead in diligent fulfillment of its social covenant with the people and society. Its outreaches had touched a large percentage of the population across all age categories”.

She hinted that coincidentally, the Committee of Wives of Lagos State Officials (COWLSO), would do a similar programme later in the year, urging the beneficiaries to use the devices as instructed and also handle them with care.

Speaking earlier, the Director, MTN Foundation, Mr. Denis Okoro stressed the commitment of the foundation to continuous upliftment of the welfare of challenged persons.

He also thanked the State Government for being the first to establish a department totally dedicated to overseeing the welfare of challenged persons.
