I just signed a petition, so the Lagos state government can implement safety measures at Nigerian beaches. Please sign it too.
The News report that created this petition was the death of two young ladies, Funmi Odushina and Sola Ogunmefun, on the 5th of June, due to the owners of Eleguishi beach and the state government's negligence to implement safety measures at the beach.
If some of these safety measures such as a standby professional lifeguard and a fully equipped medical rescue team were provided, the death rate in Nigeria's beaches especially during festive seasons like Christmas won't be high.
I hope more people sign this petition, so the Lagos government can enforce this safety measures to be provided by every beach in Lagos whether public or private owned.
