Why Ambode Banished VIO From Lagos Roads

The Lagos State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode has ordered the state’s Vehicle Inspection Officers, VIOs out of Lagos roads with immediate effect for retraining as a result of public complaints and in a bid to reposition the outfit.

Reports have it that the governor was infuriated when he learnt that the VIOs burnt the vehicle of a motorist arrested alongside some complaints about supposed high-handedness and over-zealousness of some officers.

In lieu of these developments, the governor ordered the outfit to go on compulsory retraining on the use of modern technology in order to be humane in dealing with the public.

It was gathered that the no training had been arranged since the officers left the road last week as they were still watching and waiting for the next action to be taken by the state government on the matter.

The state Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Steve Ayorinde, in his reaction said: “The truth is the transport ministry is undergoing restructuring, including the VIO. The commissioner for transportation had made some recommendations, which he will present at the State Executive Council meeting and things can move forward from there.

“But we all believed that the VIO activities should be technologically driven.”
