The Lagos State Government is leaving no stones unturned in ridding the state free of traffic and making sure motorists obey the traffic law. Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu retreated this while he was in a special service held for his honour yesterday, according to him, Henceforth, traffic offenders are to be tried by special courts in Lagos.

According to him, the special courts would be created soon, adding that convicts will be made to serve punishment if found guilty at the point of contravention.

The government would not spare anyone, irrespective of status, warning that motorists must obey traffic regulations.

According to a statement by deputy chief press secretary Gboyega Akosile, the governor spoke on Sunday at an interdenominational thanksgiving Service organized by the Lagos chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) at the Deeper Life Bible Church Headquarters in Gbagada.

The statement quoted the governor as saying: “We want the people to obey Lagos traffic law. We want them to understand that they are not the only road users who have right of way. If you want my government to finish well, don’t drive against the traffic.
“We are working with the Acting Chief Judge of the state to set up special mobile courts that will dispense judgment on traffic offenses. Any offender would be made to serve the punishment immediately, which could be in the form of compulsory community service. We are declaring zero tolerance for disobedience to traffic rules.”

Sanwo-Olu said the task of realizing the ‘Greater Lagos’ project would be difficult without the support of the residents.

He urged Christians in the state to join hands with his administration in its efforts to create a prosperous Lagos.

CAN Chairman, Apostle Alexander Bamgbola, described life as “a race”, pointing out that the governor emergence was a call to service.
He urged the governor to always seek the pleasure of God before taking decisions.

Observing that many leaders failed because they sought the pleasure of man and severed their connections with God, Apostle Bamgbola said a leader must be just in deciding the affairs of the society
