The Lagos State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, on Tuesday ordered the Vehicles Inspection Officers, (VIOs) from operating on all Lagos roads.

The governor also announced restriction of the Federal Road Safety Corps, (FRSC), to only federal highways in Lagos State.

Governor Ambode, who made announcements at the commissioning of Pedestrian Bridges, Laybys and Slip Road at Ojodu Berger.

According to him, the decisions were in line with his administration’s resolve to ensure free flow of traffic across the State.

He said the activities of officers of both VoIs and FRSC were contributing to traffic congestion on Lagos roads.

“Distinguished ladies and gentlemen, let me use this opportunity to reiterate that Vehicle Inspection Officers (VIO) 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,”the governor said.

He said as an alternative, the State Government would employ technology to track and monitor vehicle registration and MOT certifications and de-emphasise impoundment of vehicles on the roads.
