Lagos Disbands MOT Taskforce

THE Lagos State Government yesterday prohibited the operation of its enforcement team known as the Ministry of Transportation Taskforce.

Speaking on the ban, Sola Giwa, the newly appointed Special Adviser to Governor Bababjide Sanwo-Olu on Transportation, who announced it, stated that the decision was reached after a thorough appraisal and review of the Ministry of Transportation’s enforcement teams, which he said needed to be scaled down.

“Based on this new directive, the public is hereby enjoined to report the activities of any unauthorised enforcement team masquerading as M.O.T TASKFORCE to the Ministry of Transportation for further reporting to the Police for possible prosecution,” Giwa said.
