The Speaker of the Ogun State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Olakunle Oluomo has urged Management of the Traffic Compliance and Enforcement Corps (TRACE), to deploy its officers and men to major roads in the State, in order to check the excesses of transporters, particularly, drivers of haulage vehicles, to reduce road accident.
Oluomo said this while responding to the presentation of a member representing Yewa South State Constituency, Hon. Lateefat Ajayi, who lamented the high rate of accidents along Papalanto-Ilaro road, during the plenary held at the Assembly Complex, Oke-Mosan Abeokuta, stressing the need to instill sanity in the drivers, to avoid reckless driving and prevent fatality.
He added that government would ensure execution of more infrastructural projects across the State, not leaving out the completion of block of classrooms at the UNA Primary School in Ipaja-Idogo, Yewa South State Constituency.
Earlier in her submission, Hon. Ajayi had called for government’s intervention on the need to fix the Papalanto-Ilaro road, which had been damaged along Agodo junction, to aid human and vehicular movements, thereby preventing accidents with attendant loss of lives.
While calling for more developmental projects in her constituency, she appealed for the completion of on-going project at the UNA Primary school, Ipaja-Idogo.
Also, Hon. Solomon Osho submitted a petition on behalf of concerned Motorcyclists in Remo North, against the introduction of new ticketing system on commercial Riders, by the Chairman of the Local Government Council, Mr. Abiodun Somoye.
