The Lagos State Government has announced total ban on the use of amplifiers to call passengers in all motor parks across the state, a move that will bring so much sanity, lol.
The ban is to curb noise pollution prevalence across motor parks in the state
General Manager, Lagos State Environmental Protection, LASEPA, Dr. Dolapo Fasawe announced the ban at a news conference in Alausa, Ikeja, on Tuesday.
She said no motor park in Lagos from today is allowed to use amplifier to call passengers.
Fasawe said the agency is placing the ban in collaboration with the Ministry of Transportation, stressing that after today any motor park found using amplifiers would be sanctioned.
In her words: “What we want to announce and reiterate that no motor park in Lagos from today, is allowed to use amplifiers to call passengers for music or to propagate beliefs. It is a violation of the environmental protection laws of the state.”
Special Adviser to the Governor on Transportation, Oluwatoyin Fayinka re-echoed the ban, saying that any motor park that violated the order not to use amplifiers to call passengers would be shut.
He added that the person with the amplifier would be sanctioned and prosecuted.
