She noted that the Tree planting Day, which is an annual global event on 14th July will take place simultaneously across the 57 Local Governments and Local Council Development Areas.
She stated that Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu will be performing his first official tree planting as the Governor of the State at Bisola Durosimi-Etti, off Admiralty Way, Lekki Lagos, while his Deputy, Dr. Obafemi Hamzat will be planting at Costain Ram Market.
