The M.O.T Task Force’s enforcement activities have been permanently prohibited by the Lagos Ministry of Transportation.
The decision was made, according to Mr. Sola Giwa, Special Adviser to the Governor on Transportation, following a thorough evaluation and review of the enforcement teams working under the Ministry of Transportation.
Giwa warned that the ban is not a justification for drivers to break State traffic regulations as she stated that the restriction is a component of measures taken to streamline transport enforcement actions in Lagos State to achieve the needed effectiveness in accordance with international best practices.
The Special Adviser asserted that Traffic Management and Transportation is a crucial component of the T.H.E.M.E.S. Agenda of the Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu administration, highlighting the fact that the enforcement approach had been revised to improve service delivery to the State’s citizens.
Therefore, he urged the general people to inform the Ministry of Transportation of any illegal enforcement squad still using the tag M.O.T Task Force so that they may be put on trial.
The Special Adviser assured Lagosians that much is happening behind the scenes to bring about the much-needed change in the transportation industry and made an appeal to the people of Lagos to assist the State Government in its efforts to ameliorate the traffic issue around the metropolis.
