GOV Ambode Permanently Bans VIOs From Lagos Roads



The Lagos State Governor , Akinwunmi Ambode , on Tuesday said Vehicles Inspection Officers had been permanently banned from all Lagos roads .



The governor also asked the Federal Road Safety Corps to restrict the operations of its men to highways and stay off state roads .
Ambode spoke while inaugurating pedestrian bridges , a lay - by and a slip road at Berger bus stop.
The governor said the VIOs and the FRSC contributed significantly to gridlock in the state , adding that his government would employ technology to track and monitor vehicle registration and certification .

Ambode said his administration identified the Ojodu Berger area as one of the major traffic flashpoints that required urgent attention .

Ambode said a food court would be built where people could relax before climbing the pedestrian bridges as well as an interstate bus terminal within the Ojodu Berger area for buses coming from outside Lagos to drop and pick passengers , while intercity transportation system would move commuters within the city .

Earlier , in his opening remarks, the Commissioner for Waterfront Infrastructure Development , who also oversees the Ministry of work, Adebowale Akinsanya , said the project was a response to the yearnings of the people of Ojodu Berger for an efficient and gridlock - free road network.

When contacted , the Head of Media Relations, Federal Road Safety Corps , Mr . Bisi Kazeem, said the corps had already asked its officers to concentrate their efforts mainly on the highways .

About VIO, I'm not so sure.. Although they don't add any value to traffic challenges...
LASTMA has become corrupt so The Danfo drivers don't fear them anymore and they are the major cause of traffic so The government needs to sort them out..
Good news but the highway is fine,about handling the LGA chairmen to make the trunk C roads and environs decent too especially in the suburbs (Alimosho, Ojokoro, Ojo etc) make all for follow enjoy lagos.

Good news! Please Gov. Ambo include Road safety on Sundays. They made me not to go to church last two weeks, they said my girl was carrying my baby in the front. They seized my driver's license, I paid 3k the following day at the bank and collected it back. After wasting my time and still did not go to church, yet I still paid. Very wicked people! Road safety officers are too wicked oh!!!

It is a good news. I parked on saturday near my church, was afraid they will come and tow my car, but someone told me that Ambode has asked them to stop towing cars. That is a very good news because if you see the way those people dey work, you will think they are about to win a gold medal for Nigeria but for where na agbero dem be.

Ambode you never do well, let water flow for Lagos State ooo. Not every 5 days before water enter people's house and we do pay our water rate bill. Ole
