“I wish him the best of luck’’.

Ogun TRACE warns commercial motorcyclists driving against traffic
The Traffic Compliance and Enforcement Corps (TRACE) in Ogun has warned commercial motorcyclists to desist from driving against traffic to avoid unnecessary loss of lives.
The Sango-Ota Area Commander of TRACE, Adekunle Ajibade, gave the warning in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in Ota, Ogun on Saturday.
He spoke against the backdrop of a commercial motorcyclist who drove against traffic and was killed by a “Hit and Run truck’’ while the passengers were not injured.
Ajibade said that the warning became necessary as most of the motorcyclists’ riders were fond of driving against traffic, especially when there were gridlock on the roads.
He added that they also drove against traffic when there was no traffic jam, thus, endangering their passengers.
Ajibade attributed most of the accidents involving commercial motorcyclists to driving against traffic and impatience.
“It has been observed that these commercial motorcyclists’ were always in a hurry to get to their various destinations in the name of making huge money at the detriment of their passengers.
“We can no longer allow the impatient motorcyclists to continue to drive recklessly and waste innocent souls on the roads’’ he said.
He said Saturday’s accident could have been averted if the commercial motorcyclists adhered strictly to simple traffic rules and regulations.
Ajibade said that stiffer punishment would be imposed on any erring motorcyclists flouting traffic rules and regulations as well as driving against traffic.
He also warned them against overloading of passengers and load, urging that life had no duplicate.
Churches, mosques remain shut as Ogun govt. studies re-opening guidelines
The governor explained that the government had recently taken written submissions and met with religious leaders on Thursday to discuss modalities for the reopening of the worship centres.
He added that the meeting had agreed that a sub-committee, inclusive of the religious leaders, should review the submissions and the discussions to enable government arrive at a composite framework for the gradual lifting of the ban.
Abiodun stated that the committee is expected to submit its report on or before June 12.
He said that he would unveil the reports and suggested guidelines of the committee to the public in his next briefing.
“The June 12 deadline for the submission of the guidelines is to enable the gradual opening of religious activities to tentatively commence on June 19, subject to the review of preparedness by our churches and mosques to the new normal,” he said.
Continuing on the fallout of the Thurday meeting, Abiodun said that a taskforce, comprising of the religious leaders, government and security agencies, would be established to monitor and ensure compliance with the agreed guidelines for religious activities.
“Any place of worship that violates the guidelines will be closed;
“The guidelines will be reviewed at regular intervals based on developments, including expert opinions and data from the field,” he said.
Abiodun warned that the existing guidelines put in place to combat COVID-19 in the state remained operational.
He gave assurance that the state government would continue to engage stakeholders and intensify enlightenment and education of the public on the various guidelines to combat the pandemic in the state.
“We have continued to be encouraged about our approach, that is deliberate, methodical and well-thought out.
“Not only are the outcomes commendable, we have continued to receive commendations.
“As recent as Tuesday, a team of Presidential Task Force was in Ogun State and after the visit applauded our approach, especially keeping a sharp focus on Primary Healthcare Delivery system, despite the efforts to combat COVID-19.
“Therefore, our steady, cautious and focussed approach is our strength and it does work.
“Government does not derive any pleasure from asking for more time to free the space. It is both a moral and constitutional responsibility for us to ensure the welfare, wellbeing, wellness and security of all our citizens,” he said.
