Vehicular Movement Will Be Restrict In Agege Area By January 4

The Lagos State Government says it will partially restrict vehicular movement in the Agege area from January 4, 2018.

The Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Works and Infrastructure, Olujimi Hotonu, in a statement on Monday said the move was to accelerate the ongoing construction of the Pen Cinema Flyover.

Hotonu added that there would be a complete closure of roads in the area sometimes during the construction.

He said, “However, adequate arrangements have been firmed up to mitigate the impact of the closure of the roads on motorists and residents. Traffic diversion routes have been created to ensure ease of movement along the corridor.

“The construction of the flyover embarked upon by the administration of Governor Akinwunmi Ambode is part of the continuous drive to ease traffic in the metropolis and boost the economy.”

The permanent secretary said the restriction of movement would last for between three and six months.

He said, “Vehicles coming from Ogba/Oba Ogunji, except articulated vehicles, are expected to come in through Ijaiye Low Cost Housing Estate to link Iju Road; articulated vehicles and other vehicles have the option of either turning right towards Iju Road at the Pen Cinema intersection or left towards Moshalashi Alhaja.

“Vehicles coming from Iju Road should go towards Moshalashi Alhaja or turn towards Oba Ogunji/ Ogba as the turning towards the right to the Railway crossing will remain closed.

“There will be a complete closure of the road for vehicles coming from Moshalashi Alhaja towards the Railway crossing, while vehicles coming from Moshalashi Alhaja will be expected to either move towards Iju Road or turn right towards Oba Ogunji/Ogba Road.”

Title-crazy civil servants to go

Title-crazy civil servants are scared of being sacked, The Nation learnt at the weekend. Officials, who violated the Public Service Rule banning titles until after retirement, may be retired in the coming civil service reforms.
Only those whose titles were traditionally inherited may be spared but their postings and conduct will be put under watch.
According to sources, the government is disturbed that most of the top civil servants with honorary awards actually bought them at high fees.
The affected civil servants violated the rules which grants them the right to such honors only after retirement.
Besides committing the resources of Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAS) to such awards, most of the civil servants used the window to “grant favour to groups, persons, and communities in violation of their oath of office.”
