Babajide Sanwo-Olu on Works and Infrastructure, Mrs Aramide Adeyoye, the Commissioner for Transportation, Dr Frederick Oladeinde.

With the influx of vehicles in and out of Lagos state, the Minister is warning that a time is coming when the Federal Government will require motorists to adhere to the rules of the highway.
