Lagos State Government will not be taking definitive action against illegal operations of commercial motorcycles and tricycles on restricted routes across the State.
The revelation followed a Security Council meeting chaired by Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu and attended by all commanders of security agencies in the State.
According to the Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Gbenga Omotoso, the Government’s delayed action against restriction of motorcycles and tricycles was informed by the need to achieve a generally acceptable solution to the menace.
Omotoso disclosed that relevant parties and stakeholders had reached out to the Government with suggestions and representation that could be adopted to proffer a win-win solution on the matter.
The Commissioner stressed that the security of the lives of Lagos residents and the safety of visitors remained paramount to the Government, adding that the Sanwo-Olu administration would not compromise in this regard.
