Wahab, in a tweet on Sunday, said the ban was necessary because of the growing menace of single-use plastics, particularly the non-biodegradable Styrofoam.

The tweet reads:

“Following the menace which single-use plastics, especially non-biodegradable Styrofoam, are causing on the environment, the Lagos State government (@followlasg) through the Ministry of the Environment and Water Resources (@LasgMOE) is hereby announcing a ban on the usage and distribution of Styrofoam and other single-use plastics in the State with immediate effect.”
