Be More Civil – OGHA Committee Charges TRACE Officials
The Ogun State House of Assembly Committee on Transportation wants the operatives of the State Traffic Compliance and Enforcement Corps TRACE to be more civil in the discharge of their duties.
Members of the Committee led by its chairman, Mr. Oludaisi Elemide gave the advice during the assessment of the 2019 budget performance of the Corps at the agency’s headquarters in Abeokuta.
Mr. Elemide said it was imperative for the traffic regulation agency to develop correctional measures towards enforcing road traffic laws and regulations across the state.
He also recommended more capacity development programmes on modern traffic management skills for road traffic officers in the various commands of the Corps in line with global standards.
In his submission, the Corps Commander, Mr. Seni Ogunyemi said the agency with manpower of 762 personnel had generated 20.95 million naira between January and June this year.
Mr. Ogunyemi who implored the state government to accommodate the agency in the proposed Security Trust Fund said, the Corps had helped to improve the safety consciousness and behavioural pattern of roads users in the state.
The delegation also visited the state’s Parks and Garages Development Board in furtherance of the committee’s oversight functions.
