SATELLITE TOWN FORUM started this petition to United Nations and

Over 50 Tank Farms (storage of combustible petroleum products) are licensed by DPR to operate in the densely populated Satellite Town/Ijegun Egba Lagos. Daily, up to 500 of PMS laden tankers can be seen sneaking with impunity through Buba Marwa Road to Badagry Express Road. The movement of these tankers is undoubtedly danger waiting to happen any time considering the highly inflammable nature of petroleum product. Immediate relocation of the Tank Farms from the area therefore will not only avert the imminent danger but of course prevent  further degradation of the environment.

Also, while we are talking about the danger of the Tank Farms and the numbers of Tankers that move into the community to load PMS, the same Federal Government is approving Container Terminals within the Residential Area thereby adding to the danger on ground. Already there are up to 5 or more Container Terminals operating making movement difficult for the residents. 

The Tankers and Containers Trucks have taken over the road which is meant for the residents. We have series of cases on a daily basis where one or two Tankers and Containers falls on the road, so many lives has been lost in the process. 

We the Residents of Satellite Town/Ijegun Egba are saying we can't cope with the Tank Farms and Container Terminals and as a result of this, urgent relocation is needed.
