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.
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.
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.
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.
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
He, therefore, urged other interested members of the public to forward their contributions as soon as possible.
