The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) Lagos chapter has urged the state government to ban commercial buses known as Danfo from Lagos road.

This was made known by the CAN Chairman, Apostle Alexander Bamgbola on Thursday during the Vehicle Inspection Service (VIS) and Ministry of Home Affairs Interfaith Safety seminar, which was organized by Lagos State Computerised Vehicle Inspection Service (LACVIS) to sensitize Lagosians on the need to obey traffic laws.
He said: “We do not want to see Danfo on Lagos roads, they are evil. If anyone is arrested for any traffic-related offence, do not call the CAN chairman, secretary or your pastor. If defaulters go to jail one or twice for their traffic offences, they will obey the law.”Also speaking the Permanent Secretary, Lagos Ministry of Transportation, Salaam Taiwo urged the clerics to advise their members to always obey the traffic laws.

Taiwo said; “We want clerics to pacify their members because we will not allow traffic offenders to continue in Lagos.

“All the 3.1 million vehicles in Lagos must be taken to LACVIS centres for inspection. We have enough facilities to check any kind of vehicles for roadworthiness. This will further reduced road accidents on our roads.”

In the same development, Obayendo Segun, Managing Director, LACVIS, said now that there is an improvement from manual vehicle inspection to computerized form, offenders would be punished if car owners fail to comply with traffic laws.
