Lagos warns on Central Business District, starts enforcement

The Lagos State Government has commenced the enforcement of rules and regulations guiding Central Business District (CBD) as part of measures to curb illegal activities of traders and motorists that impede free flow of human and vehicular movement, ITRealms reports.

Special Adviser to the Governor on CBD, Mr. Agboola Dabiri gave this indication when he led enforcement team to Lagos Island CBD, stressing that, the government would no longer condone street trading, display of goods on the roads, walkways and illegal parking, as well as driving against the traffic.

“The State Government will no longer tolerate any act of impunity by traders and motorists. You have been warned over time to desist from all illegal activities that impede traffic,” he said, adding that, anyone caught will be made to face the full wrath of the law so as to serve as deterrent to others.

Dabiri declared that the inspection would continue ``until we all abide by all CBD rules and regulations which centered mainly on orderliness, conformity and free flow of traffic in line with international standard for CBD in developed countries”.

ITRealms gathered that over 15 vehicles were impounded in the exercise which commenced from Onikan through Broad Street, Apongbon, Elegbeta, Ebute Ero and Idumagbo. Other areas involved are Eyin Eyo, CMS, Eja Lonibu and Tinubu.

A score of recalcitrant traders were also arrested and goods seized in an exercise that caught traders, motorists and other stakeholders unaware.
