Lagos state Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, on Monday, January 7, came down hard on some motorists who drove against traffic along the Muritala Mohammed Airport road in Ikeja.
Legit.ng reports that in a statement by his chief press secretary Habib Aruna on Tuesday, January 8, the governor decried the flagrant abuse of the state traffic laws.
Ambode who was returning from Abuja where he had attended an event apprehended a Nigerian Army personnel who drove a space bus with registration number JJJ 290 AC.
On sighting the vehicle, he alighted from his car and reprimanded the officer for “showing a bad example” contrary to what the Nigeria Army is known for.
The governor reprimanded another offender who drove a saloon car with registration number LSR 445 ER, for breaking the law regardless of the dangers involved in driving against traffic.
He condemned the manner at which some motorists drive ‘one way’ to beat the traffic along the Nigerian Air force base inward International Airport road in the Ikeja axis.
Governor Ambode, thereafter, ordered the immediate seizure of the vehicles and directed that the offenders be prosecuted in line with the provisions of the traffic laws on the state.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had previously reported that following disclosure of budget submission to the Lagos assembly made by the commissioner for budget and economic planning, Olusegun Banjo, the state assembly has denied receiving the 2019 budget from the Governor Ambode-led government.
The commissioner, on Thursday, January 3, said the 2019 budget proposal of N852.317 billion was forwarded to the House of Assembly on Monday, December 24, 2018.
