It is about time that the Lagos State Government, not only makes this pronouncement but also begins to enforce it. Enforcing the traffic laws are a priority especially with the increase in traffic crimes. People being robbed while in traffic and yet, no security officials to arrest them, allowing them to go and continue to the crime.
According to the Vanguard, the pronouncement was made yesterday while the Commissioner for works and infrastructure, Mr. Ganiyu Johnson, equally stated zero tolerance for potholes in the State. The report states:
“On the matter of potholes, Johnson, who disclosed the new move at a meeting with the management staff of the Ministry of Works and Infrastructure and its sister agencies, announced the constitution of 40 gangs to execute the maintenance and patching of roads with a mandate to drastically improve commuters’ experience across the state. He noted that all the engineers in the ministry would participate in the exercise, which targets all parts of the state”.
If you ask us, we will say that these two go hand in hand as the pot holes are the major reason for the traffic situations in town. The rainy seasons are here and that mans more traffic and more opportunities for the hoodlums. We hope that the Government can start work soon.
This is also a call on the Ogun State Government to start works on the uncompleted oddo bridge in Akute.
