In line with its commitment towards re-energising the various transportation modes and evolving an effective transport policy, the Lagos State Government has called for memoranda from the public.
Making the clarion call recently was the Permanent Secretary of the Lagos State Ministry of Transportation, Dr. Taiwo Salaam, saying that the State government is committed to creating a robust transportation policy that encompasses every sector.
Dr. Salaam maintained that Lagos, which presently runs an inclusive administration, needs the support of all stakeholders such as operators, academia, transport-related unions, individuals and groups as well as non-governmental organisations in the quest.
While noting that their contributions are of utmost importance and would be considered in formulating the transport policy for the State, he hinted that a stakeholder/public hearing would be conducted before the transport policy is finalised.
The Permanent Secretary affirmed that submissions of memoranda have since commenced through the Ministry’s online platforms, phone line, email address, as well as hard copies received in his office at the Ministry of Transportation,
He, therefore, urged other interested members of the public to forward their contributions as soon as possible.
