Lagos State Government on Monday issued a 7-day ultimatum ‘Vacation Order’ to motorists/commercial bus drivers operating on top of bridges across the State.
The Special Adviser to the State Governor on Transportation Hon. @Sola_Giwa, issued the 7-day ‘Vacation Order’ on Monday based on the need to remove every infraction impeding free flow of traffic on bridges across State.
The Director of Public Affairs and Enlightenment Department of LASTMA, Adebayo Taofiq, in a statement on Monday indicated that @Sola_Giwa disclosed that despite several warnings, motorists/commercial bus drivers have continued to defy government order and causing serious obstructions around the bridges with great negative impacts on the integrity of the bridges and traffic.
He confirmed that the present administration is expending huge resources for constructing standard bus terminals/garages for commercial activities in every part of the State.
According to the Special Adviser “Every motorist/commercial bus driver operating along ‘Apongbon’ and ‘Idumota’ (Cater)Bridges, ‘Elegbata:, ‘Ebute-Ero’ and ‘Ejalonibu’ must, as a matter of urgency, vacate these areas as @followlastma would commence strict enforcement operation immediately after the expiration of this ultimatum until zero tolerance is achieved across the state”
He added that activities of these motorists/commercial bus drivers on bridges are contrary to provisions of the Lagos State Transport Sector Reform Law 2018 as amended.
@Sola_Giwa, however, affirmed that after the expiration of the ultimatum, any vehicles contravened would be immediately charged to the Lagos State Mobile Court for prosecutions.
“This 7-day ‘Vacation Order’ takes immediate effect from Monday, 16th of October, 2023,”he declared.
