Ogun State Traffic Compliance and Enforcement Corps, TRACE, has pledged to guarantee effective traffic management, prompt rescue service on Ogun traffic corridor and ensure strict adherence to Covid 19 protocols and guidelines, so as to flatten the curve of the new Delta Variant of the pandemic during and after the Eid-el-kabir celebration.
According to a release from the office of the TRACE Corps Commander/Chief Executive, Cdr. Abdul-Fatai Olaseni Ogunyemi, the exercise, which will commence throughout the State from Friday, 16th July through Monday, 26th July, 2021, would involve the full strength of TRACE Corps operational machinery, made up of 600 operatives, 35 patrol vehicles and 20 medium, as well as, high capacity tow trucks, through the hired tow operators (HTO), which is geared towards promoting the safety of all road users, by deploying operatives to man strategic beats, choke points, in addition to, road diversion, road rehabilitation and reconstruction zones across the state, to check the excesses of recalcitrant motorists and their overbearing attitude.
Furthermore, the release states that TRACE Corps, in collaboration with other sister agencies, would enforce the Covid 19 Delta Variant guidelines, more so that a high volume of human and vehicular movement is envisaged, with its attendant traffic build-up, breakdown of ill-maintained vehicles, obstruction and avoidable road crashes.
While wishing all Muslim faithfuls Happy Eid-el-kabir celebration, the TRACE boss enjoined all motorists to ensure strict compliance to traffic rules and regulations, as any vehicle contravened for any traffic infraction (s) during the celebration will not be released until Monday, 26th July, 2021, when the Corps would have ended her Eid-el-kabir Operational Order.
