The Lagos State Ministry of Transportation disbands M.O.T enforcement team.
Says ban is part of measures to streamline transport enforcement activities in Lagos.
Warns that the ban is not an excuse for drivers to disobey the traffic laws of Lagos State.
Enjoined the public to report the activities of any unauthorised enforcement team still operating.
The Lagos State Ministry of Transportation has placed an indefinite ban on the operations of its enforcement team tagged M.O.T Taskforce.
A statement by the Special Adviser to the Governor on Transportation, Mr. Sola Giwa, said that the decision was reached after a thorough appraisal and review of the enforcement teams operating under the Ministry of Transportation.
Giwa explained that the ban is part of measures initiated to streamline transport enforcement activities in Lagos State to achieve the required effectiveness in line with global best practices.
The Special Adviser maintained that Traffic Management and Transportation is a cardinal pillar in the T.H.E.M.E.S Agenda of the administration of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu.
While warning that the ban is not an excuse for drivers to disobey the traffic laws of the State, Giwa said that the readjustment of the enforcement strategy was to enhance service delivery to the people of the State.
The Special Adviser, therefore, enjoined the general public to report the activities of any unauthorised enforcement team still operating with the tag M.O.T Taskforce to the Ministry of Transportation for prosecution.
Giwa appealed to Lagosians to cooperate with the State Government in its effort to improve the traffic situation across the State. He also gave an assurance that a lot is ongoing behind the scene to bring the much-desired change in the transport sector.
