LAGOS—Following the invasion of some highways by persons in black uniforms, known as Subsidy Reinvestment and Empowerment Programme and Federal Road Maintenance Agency, SURE-P/FERMA taskforce officials, Governor Babatunde Fashola of Lagos State, yesterday, urged residents to resist any
attempt by them to manage traffic on 117 federal roads in the state describing their operation as illegal.
The taskforce officials dislodged officers of the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority, LASTMA from
some major federal roads in the state on Monday.
Fashola who spoke at the fifth year anniversary of the Uniformed Voluntary Clubs in Lagos State public schools held at the Police College, Ikeja, said that the
agency was not established by law and do not have the legal right to manage traffic in the state. The governor described the officials as ‘illegal’,
alleging that their establishment was done by some politicians to create confusion during the 2015 general elections in the state.
