    No fewer than 1,000 Special Traffic Majors positioned themselves along major roads in Ikeja, capital of Lagos State, on Tuesday to complement the efforts of the police and Lagos State Traffic Management Agency (LASTAM) officials in decongesting the area of traffics logjam.
    Daily Independent observed that as early as 7.00 a.m., the majors, led by Abel Olu Badejo, state chairman of LASTAM Special Traffic Majors, were on Mobolaji Bank Anthony Way, Ikeja Bus-Stop, Allen Avenue, Opebi Road, Toyin Street and Obafemi Awolowo Way, controlling traffic.
    Speaking to our correspondent at the Mobolaji Bank Anthony roundabout, close to the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital, (LASUTH), Ikeja, the chairman disclosed that there are 3,000 active traffic majors across various areas in Lagos.
    “These majors are professionals such as medical doctors, lawyers, counselors, business persons, community leaders, artisans, among others, who render voluntary services in the area of assisting the LASTAM and the police to control traffic during peak periods in the morning.
    Badejo, who is a one time Chairman of Alimosho Local Government area further explained that there are three Special Traffics Major commands in Lagos.
    He listed them as ‘Area Charlie’, which coordinates traffic decongestions around Pen Cinema, Agege, Iju, Abule Egba, Oko Oba and Alagbado; ‘Area Gulf’, which falls under Iyana-Ipaja, Ejigbo, Gowon Estate, Dopemu, Idimu, Igando, Ikotun and ‘Area Mike’, comprising Shogunle, PWD, Ikeja, Oregun and Ojota, among others. Makonjuola, the state general secretary, praised Babatunde Fashola, Governor of Lagos State, for supporting the majors with customised T-shirts, and called on “Lagosians of unquestionable characters, those who are interested in serving God, through serving humanity” to join them in controlling traffic on Tuesdays and Fridays on major roads in the state.
