Share This

By OLALEKAN AYENI --- The Ota Zonal Commandant of Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), CSC Oluwagbenga Samuel Eludiwura, yesterday paid a courtesy visit to Ota Area Command of Ogun State Traffic Compliance and Enforcement Corps (TRACE) in a bid to further widen the synergy between the Corps, TRACE and other Security Services within the zone.

The Commandant appreciated TRACE for the wonderful roles it has been playing in the areas of training and capacity building amongst other things geared towards the reduction of traffic snarl and crashes in Ogun State.

He also seized the opportunity to express his willingness and readiness to work with the TRACE and other sister agencies to combat any form of traffic Indiscipline and insecurity within the jurisdiction.

In his response, Ogun West Area Commander, Adekunle Ariyo Ajibade, thanked CSC Eludiwura for the visit. He said the Corps Commander and Chief Executive Officer, Abdulfatai Olaseni Ogunyemi, has mandated all the Commands' personnel to work in collaboration with other safety and security agencies to tackle the menace causing traffic gridlocks and crashes on the roads especially during rainy season.

He attributed 85 per cent of the traffic jam and crashes on the roads to lack of discipline and disobedience to traffic laws. 

Commander Ajibade, thereby soliciting for more cooperation of NSCDC, Police and other sister agencies to curb the bad attitude towards the use of roads, saying "safety on the road is everybody's business".

He appealed to motorists to adhere strictly to traffic rules and COVID 19 protocols during the Eld-el-Kabir celebrations. He admonished motorists to say 'No' to drive against traffic, overloading vehicle either with passengers or loads, overspeeding, illegal parkings and drunk driving. "Anyone caught will definitely face the music," he concluded.
