Official: Governor Ambode Bans VIOs Permanently From All Roads, Bans FRSC From State Roads | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper f


The Lagos State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, on Tuesday said the withdrawal of the Vehicles Inspection Officers from all Lagos roads was permanent.

The governor also asked the Federal Road Safety Corps to restrict their operations to highways and stay off state roads.

Ambode spoke while inaugurating the pedestrian bridge, lay-by and slip road at Berger bus stop.

The governor said VIOs and FRSC contributed significantly to gridlock in the state, adding that his government would employ technology to track and monitor vehicle registration and MOT certifications.

“The Vehicle Inspection Officers have been asked to stay off our roads permanently. We also advice the Federal Road Safety Corps to stay on the fringes and highways and not on the main streets of Lagos.

“It has become evident that these agencies contribute to the traffic challenges on our roads. We will employ technology to track and monitor vehicle registration and MOT certifications, ” Ambode said.
