LASTMA to enforce traffic laws on its bus operators

Chairman of the newly-constituted committee on Lagos State Parks Administration, the Oniba of Iba Kingdom, Oba (Dr.) Sulaimon Ashade, yesterday, asked members of the committee to drum massive support for the success of the presidential candidate of the ruling party, All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu and the re-election bid of Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu.

Oba Ashade, who gave the charge during a stakeholders’ meeting in Akesan, Alimosho Local Council, described Tinubu as the only candidate with unequalled sterling qualities Nigeria urgently needed for socio-cultural, political and economic advancements, considering his wealth of experience and antecedents as a pragmatic and visionary leader with unmatched foresight.

The monarch also said that on October 30, 2022, which coincides with the second year anniversary of his coronation as the Oniba of Iba Kingdom, there would be a mega rally for Tinubu and Sanwo-Olu respectively.

In another development, the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA) has said that necessary arrangements have been put in place to enforce traffic laws on some recalcitrant Lagos State Metropolitan Area Transport Authority (LAMATA), bus drivers, across the state.

General Manager of LASTMA, Bolaji Oreagba, disclosed this, yesterday, during a courtesy visit by management members of staff of LAMATA to its headquarters in Lagos.

He said that the enforcement of traffic laws on reckless BRT bus operators became imperative following a series of complaints from members of the public on the recalcitrant attitude of some of the drivers, particularly at major intersections across the metropolis.

Earlier, the Director of Corporate Communication, LAMATA, Kolawole Ojelabi, urged synergy between LAMATA and LASTMA in traffic management and enforcement.
