Governor Ambode pleads with military officials to obey traffic laws

The governor of Lagos state is pleading with the military not to violate traffic regulations.

Governor Akinwunmi Ambode.

About two weeks ago, over ten military vehicles were arrested for driving illegally on the Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) corridor.

This arrest was made by the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA)

"For today, the most erring people on BRT lane are the military officers. Over 10 vehicles of the military were found on the BRT corridor and we are going to write the army authorities.’’

In light of this, the governor of Lagos state, Akinwunmi Ambode, is urging the military not to violate traffic regulations.

"Over the years, the military has cooperated with us but I once again seek for more cooperation in ensuring that these laws are adhered to seriously. We have always been partners in progress; we have always been supportive of one another. It is not in our character to embarrass one another; we want the partnership to continue."

He went on to commend the efforts of the military concerning security.

’’The issue of security is very important and we want you to please continue in that trend so that together we can make Lagos the Lagos of our dreams."

The appeal was made by the governor's representative, Dr Idiat Adebule, at the Lagos House, Alausa.
