Gov. Ambode declared these on Tuesday while commissioning the pedestrian bridge, lay-by and slip road at Ojodu-Berger Bus Stop.

He blamed traffic gridlock in Lagos metropolis to VIOs and FRSC, advising the latter to restrict their operations to highways and stay off streets in the Lagos metropolis.

The governor, however, banned the VIOs completely.

He said, “Let me use this opportunity to reiterate that Vehicle Inspection Officers (VIOs) 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 certification.”
