LASTMA, Army to collaborate on traffic mgmt
The Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA) and the Nigerian Army have agreed to collaborate to effectively manage the near chaotic traffic situations in the state.
General Manager of LASTMA, Bolaji Oreagba, disclosed the development, during a working visit by Officials of the 9 Brigade Command of the Nigerian Army led by Brigadier-General Adegoke Moses Adetuyi.
Oreagba while receiving the Military personnel said it was a great honour receiving the officials of the Command at LASTMA Headquarters at Oshodi.
Speaking on the recent face-off between LASTMA officers and soldiers, Oreagba said there was no quarrel between the two sister agencies, adding that
LASTMA personnel would continue to rely on continuous support from the
Nigerian Army, and other security agencies statewide.
Earlier in his address, the Commander of the 9 Brigade of the Nigerian
Army, Brigadier General Adegoke Moses Adetuyi, said bad elements
prosper when there is division among security agencies.
According to him, there is a need for more cordial collaboration and maximum cooperation between all government agencies, including LASTMA.
While commending LASTMA officials for the wonderful work they are doing morning and night, Brigadier Adetuyi promised that the Nigerian Army particularly the 9 Brigade Command, would continue to render support where necessary to activities of LASTMA on our roads and ensure safety of traffic managers in the discharge of their statutory duties.
