VIO Officials Undergoing Training, Not Totally Banned – LASG Clarifies


The Lagos State Government on Tuesday clarified that the ban of operations of the Vehicle Inspection Officers, VIOs, is temporal.

Commissioner for Transportation, Prince Olanrewaju Elegushi, stated‎ that the VIOs only went for training to improve their services in line with global best practices.

In his words: “Nobody is banning VIOs from the roads; there is no directive to that effect from the governor of Lagos State.

“Right now, the VIO officials in the state are undergoing training on how they will improve their services on Lagos roads.

“It ‘s a month-long event for the officials where they will undergo intensive training so that they will be able to deliver quality and better service across the state. “We all believe that VIOs need to perform their functions in a more civilised way and be technologically driven”. Steve Ayorinde, the state Commissioner for Information and Strategy, explained that LASG’s order to the VIOs to vacate the roads was to pave way for its reforms. “There is an ongoing reform as to how the VIO carries out its operations, which might require that the inspection officers are off the streets at this point.

“The government is keen to have their operations more streamlined and technologically-driven to serve the people of Lagos better,” Ayorinde said.
