The Lagos State government on Thursday stopped the operations of its enforcement team tagged Ministry of Transportation Task Force (M.O.T).

Social media aide to the governor, Jubril Gawat, disclosed this in a post on his Twitter page on Friday.

According to the statement, Sola Giwa, the special adviser to the governor on transportation, said the decision to disengage the team was reached after a thorough appraisal and review of the enforcement teams operating under the ministry of transportation.

Mr Giwa explained that the ban is part of measures initiated to streamline transport enforcement activities in the state which aims to achieve the required effectiveness in line with global practices.

He warned motorists to abide by the state traffic laws “the ban is not an excuse for drivers to disobey the traffic laws of the State.”

“The Special Adviser averred that Traffic Management and Transportation is a cardinal pillar in the T.H.E.M.E.S Agenda of the administration of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, stressing that the readjustment of the enforcement strategy was to enhance service delivery to the people of the State,” he said.

“He, therefore, enjoined the general public to report the activities of any unauthorised enforcement team still operating with the tag “M.O.T Taskforce” to the Ministry of Transportation for prosecution. 

“Appealing to Lagosians to cooperate with the State Government in its effort to improve the traffic situation across the metropolis, the Special Adviser gave an assurance that a lot is ongoing behind the scene to bring the much-desired change in the transport sector.”
