Sanwo-Olu gives seven-day ultimatum for removal of abandoned vehicles under bridges
The Governor of Lagos state, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has given the owners of trucks and vehicles parked under the Costain Bridge seven days to remove them or have them impounded and the owners prosecuted.
Sanwo-Olu’s Special Adviser to the Governor on Transportation, Sola Giwa, and General Manager of the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA) Bolaji Oreagba gave the directive at an emergency stakeholders’ meeting in Alausa.
They said the directive followed the governor’s order that abandoned vehicles parked indiscriminately under bridges across the state be removed.
Giwa said: “Governor Sanwo-Olu has declared zero tolerance for environmental abuse, illegal and indiscriminate dumping of refuse, and defacing of the environment when he signed the ‘Executive Order’ on traffic and sanitation.”
