Ambode Permanently Bans FRSC, VIO From Lagos Roads, Commissions Ojodu Berger Bridge

The governor of Lagos state, Akinwumi Ambode has placed a permanent ban on Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) and Vehicle Inspection Officers (VIO) from operating in the state.


Governor Ambode made this known while commissioning the Ojodu Berger bridge on Tuesday.


According to a statement released by his Chief press secretary, Habib Aruna, the governor said the decisions were in line with his administration’s resolve t a ensure free flow of traffic across the State, noting that their activities were contributing to traffic congestion on Lagos roads.



He said "Distinguished ladies and gentlemen, let me use this opportunity to reiterate that Vehicle Inspection Officers (VIO) have been asked to stay off our roads permanently.

"We also advice the Federal Road Safety Corps to stay on the fringes and highways and not on the main streets of Lagos. It has become evident that these agencies contribute to the traffic challenges on our roads.”

He said as an alternative, the State Government would employ technology to track and monitor vehicle registration and MOT certifications and de-emphasise impoundment of vehicles on the roads".
