#EndSARS: Abuja residents call for presence of security operatives
Residents of Abuja have urged security operatives, particularly traffic management officials, to resume work.
This is coming after traffic gridlocks continue to be the order of the day. Also, a place like Lagos is not an exception.
President of Road Users Development Network of Nigeria, Dr. John Uket, spoke during a one-day national dialogue on traffic management at the Federal Capital Development Administration (FCDA) Hall in Abuja.
Uket said he observed that the renewed traffic situation in Abuja and Lagos was “as a result of the absence of road traffic personnel from agencies, such as the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Nigeria Police Force, Department of Road Traffic Services (VIO), LASTMA and others who have left the roads unattended to for the fear of the mayhem of the recent uprisings adding that “in the past few weeks, our nation witnessed an unprecedented turn of events, which has hampered our socio-economic activities of which road traffic is its pivot.”
He noted, “However, traffic situations in Abuja seem to be getting worse in the last one week or so. The traffic situation is better imagined than experienced.”
Information gathered reveals that the gridlock is as a result of the disappearance of security operatives from roads due to the prolonged #EndSARS protests that led to the destruction of private and public property as well as death of some security operatives.
