Governor of Lagos State, Akinwunmi Ambode, has ordered the temporary suspension of the Vehicle Inspection Officers (VIOs) from the roads in the state with immediate effect.
According to a Source, Ambode has asked the officers to stay away until further notice.
It is understood that the directive is in line with the current administration’s policy of compulsory training and retraining of all public workers.
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.
