Governor Sanwo-Olu commissions new VIS headquarters equipped with modern technology in Lagos
Governor Sanwo-Olu’s administration is the main initiator of the delivery and construction of this ultramodern edifice that will activate a new transportation blueprint for efficient traffic management in Lagos state.
During the opening ceremony of this new building, Sanwo-Olu highlighted the recent substantial improvements when it comes to implementing the Lagos state traffic laws notably with the introduction of the Lagos Computerised Vehicle Inspection Service (LACVIS) and Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR). The Governor while giving his speech during the ceremony, said;
"With the commissioning of this new operational headquarters for VIS officers, we are consolidating on the progress we have recorded so far in transforming the transportation sector. VIS plays a critical role in ensuring that vehicles that ply our routes do not constitute dangers to the commuters.
“Vehicles that break down are major contributors to traffic gridlocks in Lagos, which result in avoidable losses of productive life and time. We must minimize this destructive breakdown of unworthy vehicles through strict enforcement of relevant laws aided by the application of modern technology.”
>>> Procedures that require a visit to Vehicle Inspection Service:
- How to change car ownership in Nigeria (Sample of Form MVA 5 included)
- Lagos state vehicle registration & plate number verification
The computerised vehicle inspection center will shorten the time-consuming process
Will Sanwo-Olu’s vision as regards these new innovations “ever come true” considering the typical Nigerian disorganized systems and corruption level?
