Today marked the beginning of the Traffic Management and Transportation Summit in Lagos state.
Speaking at the event, the governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, had some fantastic things to say about his administration’s plan to tackle traffic crisis.
“As one of the leading commercial centres and an emerging City-State, we need to go back to the drawing board and agree on how our transportation sector can be effectively and efficiently operated to support the kind of trade and investment we want to continually attract.”
“We need to collectively examine how transportation sector can improve public sector delivery through better institutional framework, quality transport infrastructure and then tackle wasteful and socially harmful transport patterns.”
“You will agree with me that the ease of travelling, mobility and communication are critical fuels for our State economic engine.”
“As a Government that is keen on promoting business and creating wealth opportunities for our residents, we are committed to seeking and funding substantial and comprehensive solutions to traffic challenges, therefore we are ready to take tough recommendations you come out with.”
“Tackling traffic is a good place to start; a good place to begin the significant change that our people expect from us. Let us make Lagos work for us all.”
He also said he has the political will to tackle the traffic gridlock in Lagos.
Do you agree?
