Gov. Ambode warns LASTMA officials against forcing themselves into people’s vehicles

Yesterday, the new Lagos state governor, Akinwunmi Ambode warned LASTMA and VIO officials against forcing themselves into people’s vehicles while trying to stop them over traffic violations.

“I want LASTMA, KAI, and VIO to help this government deliver on the promises made to the public, and there are two promises: to make life simpler for every resident of Lagos and make each resident happier than before. I don’t want officers that will torture my citizens. They may be offenders but don’t torture them. Don’t jump into their cars to enforce arrest. This is where you have to be creative and use technology in the implementation of the law. For now, no harassment.” the new governor said during a meeting with officials of LASTMA, KAI and VIO at Government State House, Ikeja
