Fashola opens traffic radio in Lagos

Lagos State Governor Babatunde Fashola on Tuesday opened the first traffic radio station in Nigeria.
The radio station is owned by the state government and will help to rid the state of traffic jams.
Speaking at the opening ceremony, Fashola said it was a demonstration of efforts by his administration to provide motorists with useful information on the traffic situation in the state.
The 24-hour radio station will operate on 96.1FM frequency and is located in the premises of Radio Lagos, Agidingbi, Ikeja.
Fashola said, “The radio will provide traffic news which will assist motorists to make the right decisions that will in turn help to decongest the roads.
“Before now, we were broadcasting traffic information through the existing radio and TV stations, but we realised that it would be better to set up a dedicated radio for better results.
“The new traffic radio will help reduce traffic on our roads.”
