Lagos State Governor Babatunde Fashola (SAN) on Tuesday 30th September inaugurated the Motor Vehicle Administration Agency’s One-Stop Centre where drivers can process and obtain drivers license in two hours.
Fashola, while speaking at the event held at LASTMA yard, Oshodi, said the development was part of the strategies embarked upon by his administration to ensure that transportation is efficient in Lagos.
The governor pointed out that the influx of vehicles necessitated holistic approach to make life easier for the residents in spite of the growing population.
He said: “Today, apart from road solutions, from just about 100, 000 commuters a day, who were travelling on Lagos waterways, I can tell you very confidently today that we now have over 3million passengers every months being moved by about 200 ferries privately owned and licensed and more ferries are coming. Before the end of the year, we will deploy three of the big ferries that Alhaji Lateef Jakande bought during his term.”
Fashola added that the administration has also, through the Lagos Traffic Law, reduced accidents and armed robberies.
Earlier, state Commissioner for Transportation, Mr. Kayode Opeifa, said with the new one-stop centre, drivers can process and obtain drivers license in two hours.
