This is warning was contained in a statement signed on January 31, 2014, Friday, by Mr Sina Thorpe, Asst. Director (Press and Public Relations), Lagos State Ministry of Transportation.
The government had on November 1, 2013, directed commercial vehicle owners, drivers and conductors to carry out data documentation.
It announced that the deadline for the documentation would be December 31, 2013.
According to the statement, the registration is aimed at ensuring safety and security of Lagos residents in line with Regulation 41 of the Lagos Road Traffic Law, 2012.
The statement also noted that the delay in the documentation was hindering the take-off of the implementation of the other aspect of the policy – issuance of licence to registered commercial vehicle operators.
It urged passengers to cooperate with the government during the enforcement by not sympathising with the operators.
The drivers and conductors are to register in any of the five Lagos State Drivers’ Institutes in Ikeja, Badagry, Ikorodu, Lagos Island and Epe.
