It was, however, not clear if the re-introduced monthly environmental sanitation would take the format of the cancelled monthly sanitation.

On November 23, 2016, the state government announced it was cancelling the monthly environmental sanitation following a defeat it suffered from a legal battle over the restriction of movement during the monthly sanitation.

But in announcing the cancellation then, the Lagos State government on said the decision to cancel the monthly exercise followed a resolution arrived at its Executive Council meeting which approved the need for a robust review of the environmental laws and procedures in the state to meet the present day challenges and to promote a clean and healthy environment.

The government noted that considering the present economic situation in the country, it was no longer appropriate to restrict the movement of people for three hours in a mega city like Lagos at a time when they should be pursuing commercial and entrepreneurial activities.

According to the government, in the last two decades, Lagos has grown exponentially into a mega city with the attendant huge environmental problems associated with managing a population of over twenty million people.
