The Lagos State Special Traffic Management Enforcement Team has said it will enforce the electronic call-up system introduced for trucks by the Nigerian Ports Authority.
Head of the team and Special Adviser to the Governor on Transportation, Oluwatoyin Fayinka, told newsmen during traffic inspection at Apapa on Monday that the team was still assessing the situation as directed by the government, adding that the call-up system, codenamed Eto, would be enforced.
Noting appreciable improvement, he, however, said there were some grey areas still that needed to be addressed.
Fayinka said Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu directed the team to assess the situation following the commencement of Eto on Saturday, February 27, 2021.
Among the places visited by the team included Funsho Williams Avenue, Ijora-Apapa Area B and Tin Can Port.
During a visit to Apapa on Tuesday, Financial Street observed improvement in the traffic situation, ostensibly due to the take-off of Eto.
Chief Press Secretary of the Lagos State Government, Gboyega Akosile, state that the government acknowledged the residents’ happiness over the development.
