– illegal outlets to be sealed off

Sequel to the menace of incessant explosion of Gas Filling Stations in the State, the Lagos State Government on Wednesday declared Zero Tolerance to the siting of Gas and Petrol Filling Stations in densely populated residential areas across the State, while it vows to clamp down on all outlets operating illegally.

This was conveyed by the Commissioner for Physical Planning and Urban Development, Dr. Idris Salako during a meeting with District Officers and Supervisory Directors at the Lagos State Physical Planning Permit Authority( LASPPPA) headquarters at GRA, Ikeja.

He said that it had become expedient to discourage the propensity to establish Gas and Petrol Stations indiscriminately in densely populated residential neighborhoods across the State and safeguard
lives and properties, while maintaining the sanctity of the built environment.

While noting that only 17 Gas Filing Stations had Planning Permit, he expressed that all illegally built outlets as well as those operating in densely populated residential areas would be sealed off to avert further mishaps.

To safely decomission any sealed Gas/Petrol Filling Station, Salako said that the Ministry would work with other agencies including the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources, the Lagos State Safety Commission, the Lagos State Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Petroleum Resources.

He urged District Officers and Supervisory Directors to be alive to their responsibilities and uphold the Standard Operating Procedures of the Ministry, while warning that erring officers would be punished in line with the Public Service Rules.

The Commissioner averred that in continuation of efforts to sanitise the built environment, breakers of Government enforcement seals as well as owners of collapsed buildings would be prosecuted in line with the Lagos State Urban and Regional Planning and Development Law 2019.

With him at the meeting were the Special Adviser to the Governor on Urban Development, Ganiyu Adele Ayuba, Permanent Secretary, Arc. Foluso Adebayo Dipe, General Manager, Lagos State Physical Planning Permit Authority, Tpl. Funmi Oshifuye and the General Manager, Lagos State Building Control Agency, Engr. Abiola Kosegbe.

Online shopping has redefined the way we make purchases with shopping and payment done through the internet. In most cases, the only time the customer has human interface is with the delivery agent when packages are delivered. However, a lot of manpower and activities go behind the scene to ensure orders are properly processed and items delivered in good condition. 

A tour led by Adetunji Lanase, Country Manager Jumia Nigeria into one of the biggest Jumia warehouses in Nigeria showed the process items pass through before they are delivered at the doorsteps of customers. From the entry point, it was easy to see that a Jumia warehouse is a place of organized activities.

Though divided into sections, the activities are all connected to produce quality service delivery to customers. Below is a glance through phases and activities in the packaging process:

Inbound area: This is the first section in the chain of goods packaging processing. Working with strict covid-19 guidelines which are maintained across the warehouse, this section receives items to be sold on the Jumia platform from sellers.

Staging area: Being the second phase in the process, this is the intermediate storage area for the items received from sellers. Here, the Jumia team ensures items are arranged and organized according to the warehouse number for easy pickup when orders are placed.

Outflow area: This section is the inventory location where the picker moves to pick the list of orders on queue and scans the items. The item is processed and prepared for packaging before being shipped to the next section in the chain.

Outbound hub: Items need to be protected for the transportation process. While doing this, the impact of packaging is considered by the Jumia team. Here, the team on ground inspects items approved for delivery to ensure they are in good condition. They label the items, and then create a master packaging bag to ensure the items are presented to meet the customer’s aesthetics taste.

Network Hub: The packages are brought to this section for sortation according to the region/destination of the packed items.
