Speaking in his office at the Secretariat, Alausa, LASEMA General Manager, Mr. Adesina Tiamiyu emphasized the need for attitudinal change of the people, especially motorists/commuters who feel the ember months are the time to double their hustle.

The end up rushing to make more money and to get to their various destination at the least possible time at this period thereby leading to major road accidents which are caused by over speeding/reckless driving, drinking of alcohol and not adhering to traffic rules.

He maintained that the “ember months” are just like every other month of the calendar year and as such, motorists are advised to ensure necessary safety precautions.

Tiamiyu stressed that the Lagos State Emergency Management Agency (LASEMA), Lagos State Fire Service, Lagos State Ambulance Service (LASAMBUS), Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA), Nigerian Police Force, Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) and all the other Agencies that are important in the management of emergencies in the State have been put on red alert to secure and protect the lives and properties of people living and doing business in the State.
