The Lagos State Government (LASG) through the Ministry of Transportation has affirmed its commitment to maintaining its enforcement campaign until commercial vehicle drivers heed to government’s warnings.
In the ongoing efforts by the LASG to sanitize the roads and ensure that commercial vehicles desist from the practice of indiscriminate parking at laybys and bridges.
The Ministry of Transportation, along with its enforcement team comprising the Commissioner for Transportation, Mr. Oluwaseun Osiyemi, the Special Adviser to the Governor on Transportation, Hon. Sola Giwa and the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry, Mr. Olawale Musa, conducted a comprehensive enforcement operation in Ojodu Berger today, a followup on the earlier visit to the area 2 weeks ago.
