Gov. Ambode Places Permanent Ban On VIOs


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 .
