Lagos State commissioner for Environment and Water Resources, Tokunbo AbdulWahab, has been commended for doing the right thing by making Lagos state a safer and cleaner environment.
He was also adjudged as an added value to the society that will discharge his duty without blemish.
This view was expressed by his colleagues of class 2000 of the Nigerian Law School at a reception organised for him in Ikeja, Lagos.
