The Lagos State Government has announced the suspension of all activities of the Road Transport Employers Association of Nigeria (RTEAN) in the state with immediate effect.
The decision by the state government followed the fracas that occurred between warring factions of the association 2 days ago at Iyana-Iba and Lagos Island.
This was made known in a statement issued on Thursday by the Special Adviser to the Governor on Transportation, Sola Giwa, who confirmed that the decision was necessary after some pockets of violence recorded in Ojo and Lagos Island on Wednesday.
Giwa said the move was aimed at fulfilling one of the state government’s cardinal objectives under the T.H.E.M.E.S Development Agenda.
The acronym, T.H.E.M.E.S, refers to the six pillars of the State’s strategic development agenda, namely: Traffic Management and Transportation, Health and Environment, Education and Technology, Making Lagos a 21st Century Economy, Entertainment and Tourism, as well as Security and Governance.1355 Post Views
