Dr AbdulHakeem AbdulLateef, the commissioner of Home Affairs, has spoken on the high rate of traffic in Lagos, adding that this is because of the impatience of the citizens.
Commissioner predicts a future without traffic for Lagos state
The commissioner of Home Affairs, Dr AbdulHakeem AbdulLateef, is promising a traffic-free Lagos soon.
“The fact that we don’t want to apply extreme force on Lagosians has given rise to this. Extreme force to obey law and order should be the last thing in a civil society. Lagosians should understand that what we practice is an inclusive government. Therefore, you should not disobey traffic rules and volunteer to control traffic. By doing these, we will see the gridlocks will be a thing of the past. The Home Affairs unit will take it on itself to engage the people and make them understand what civil culture means”.
However, he is promising Lagosians a traffic-free state because of his faith in the personalities in the state executive council of the Akinwunmi Ambode-led administration.
This comes after the governor promised to fight traffic and crime by buying three helicopters.
