General Manager of the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA), Mr. Bolaji Oreagba, has called for the establishment of more “Traffic Safety Advocacy Clubs” in both public and private schools in an effort to improve traffic management throughout the state.
Mr. Oreagba made the remark during an interactive session with students from ‘Dee-Gee Secondary School’ in Ebute Metta, Lagos, who had come to pay him a courtesy visit to commemorate his 365 days in office.
The LASTMA boss disclosed that the establishment of more of these Clubs in our School would go a long way in inculcating Traffic Safety measures into our students at a tender age.
“These young Students are definitely the future of this Country, so if you catch them young by impacting traffic knowledge in them automatically there would be a massive reduction in accidents on our roads in the nearest future”
He noted that the ‘School Advocacy Programme (SAP) where Lastma Officers educate and enlighten Students of different Schools is continuous across the 5 divisions of the State.
Mr. Oreagba urged parents/guardians to set a good example for their children by obeying all traffic laws and road signs whenever they are on the road.
Senior Management Staff and LASTMA Comptrollers were also present during the interactive session with the General Manager.
