Lagos Govt Issues Seven-Day ‘Vacation Order’ To Commercial Buses, Motorists

Meanwhile, a seven-day ‘Vacation Order’ to motorists and commercial bus drivers operating on top of bridges across Lagos State has been issued, Naija News has learned.

The Lagos State Government on Monday disclosed the vacation order to inform commercial bus drivers, popularly known as ‘danfo drivers’, and other motorists in the state, to stop packing vehicles on bridges.

The Special Adviser to the Lagos State Governor on Transportation, Sola Giwa, said the order was part of the state government’s move to tackle infractions affecting the free flow of traffic on bridges across the State.

Giwa, in a statement by a spokesman for the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA), Adebayo Taofiq, said the state government has constructed bus terminals and garages for commercial activities in the state, so they have no business packing around on bridges.

He said despite several warnings, the Danfo drivers have continued to defy government orders and cause serious obstructions around these bridges with great negative impacts on the integrity of the bridges and traffic.

The special adviser submitted, “Every motorist/commercial bus driver operating along ‘Apongbon’ and ‘Idumota’ (Cater) Bridges, ‘Elegbata:, ‘Ebute-Ero’ and ‘Ejalonibu’ must as a matter of urgency vacate these areas as LASTMA would commence strict enforcement operation immediately after the expiration of this ultimatum until zero tolerance is achieved across the state.”
