The Office of the Special Adviser to the Governor on Central Business Districts has assured Lagosians, especially shoppers and commuters doing business on the Lagos Central Business District area, of their safety during the Sallah festival.

Special Adviser to the Governor on Central Business Districts, Mr. Agboola Dabiri, gave the assurance on Monday while monitoring the traffic situation on the Marina and Broad Street to Apongbon axis, stressing that major steps have been taken to ensure a safe and secure business environment in the Lagos Island CBD.

Dabiri, who noted that during festive periods, Lagos Island usually witnessed a high influx of people, said the Office had harmonised environmental, traffic and safety enforcement activities to prevent gridlock, guarantee security and remove all impediments that could constitute a danger to Lagosians.

His words: “All enforcement officers are now on regular patrol along the CBDs axis and have been mandated to improve on their performances in a way that traders, shoppers and other stakeholders will appreciate and feel safe to transact their businesses.”

The Special Adviser promised residents of a smooth and reduced crime session in Lagos CBD, saying extreme measures are in place to curtail violence and other activities that may constitute a breach of security.

Such measures, according to him, will include useful public enlightenment, regular patrol, surveillance, community relations and crime-fighting.

He said the construction and handing over of Apongbon Bus Park have drastically reduced the traffic snarl usually experienced on the Apongbon – Marina Axis, adding that all relevant agencies are on the ground to sustain the free flow of traffic currently being enjoyed on the Apongbon – Marina axis.

“There is going to be presence of all stakeholders in those areas and I want to say that no obstruction will be permitted on the axis, no commercial vehicle is allowed to stop along the axis and any broken down vehicle within the route will be removed within reasonable time in order not to obstruct free flow of traffic,” Dabiri stated.

He, however, advised shoppers and motorists to obey all relevant environmental and traffic rules by not parking on walkways, roads and bridges.
