Lagos Govt Suspends RTEAN Activities Statewide

The Lagos government has suspended all activities of the Road Transport Employers Association of Nigeria (RTEAN) with immediate effect.

The announcement comes a day after factional members of the association clashed in the Iyana Iba and Lagos Island areas of the state.

In a statement announcing the suspension on Thursday, the Special Adviser to the Governor on Transportation, Sola Giwa, said the move was aimed at fulfilling one of the state government’s cardinal objectives under the T.H.E.M.E.S Development Agenda.
