No cabinet member will be exempted from traffic rules – Sanwo Olu

Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has declared that members of his cabinet, family members and friends who flout traffic rules in the state would bear the consequences and penalty attached to such act.

Sanwo-Olu made the declaration during his official visit to the headquarters of the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA) in Oshodi on Friday.

He said:

”I will tell my cabinet members that if you are caught or apprehended violating my traffic rules, you will pay.”
Also addressing the operation of commercial motorcycles (okada) on highways, tricycles and indiscriminate parking of imported vehicles by the roadside, the Governor said he will have a meeting with the Commissioner of Police and other security operatives to look at the existing laws and better way for their enforcement for the benefit of every Lagosian.

“There are rules that guide the operation of commercial motorcycles. The Lagos State law has stated okada should not operate on some roads. We will have a meeting with security operatives on what we should do.”

”We are not going to condone people obstructing our roads. I am now taking it as a warning to all those parking their vehicles on the road such as importers of tokunbo vehicles to comply by removing them from the road because we will come one day and take all the vehicles off the road. People should provide space for their businesses,” Sanwo-Olu warned.

Some LASTMA officials who spoke at the interactive session with the Governor also used the opportunity to seek his support for the provision of adequate security for those whose operations have been extended to 11 pm, improvement in their welfare packages, rehabilitation of roads, training, and enforcement of existing regulations, to aid their operations.
