Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has told the Lagos
State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA) not to spare anyone who violates
traffic laws, even if it were his brother.
Mr Sanwo–Olu said on Friday at LASTMA office in Oshodi
area of the state that there would be no sacred cow in law enforcement.
The governor told LASTMA officers that if anyone broke traffic law and was arrested and he said he knew the governor, ‘tell him to call the governor to pay the money for the offence.’
“I will tell my cabinet members that if you are caught or apprehended violating my traffic rules, you will pay,” he said.
Sanwo-Olu also said that he would not condone corruption or bribe-taking from any LASTMA official.
“Lagosians expect a corrupt-free LASTMA that will not be collecting bribes; therefore, you should be respectful and courteous even when you are going to arrest an offender.
“Lagosians want LASTMA that is decent and neat; we don’t want laziness and lateness to work. Be my advocates,” the governor said.
