He said:

“It is very disheartening that traffic situations and physical planning within the Ikeja business district has been distorted and worsen by the activities of shop owners, car dealers, commercial bus and cab operators as well as private car owners who park indiscriminately within the business district. We are here today to sensitize them and seek their cooperation and mutual understanding to stop the flagrant disobedience to environmental and physical planning laws of Lagos state.”

“Oyerinde reminded stakeholders that the activities of the CBDs management office are tailored towards impacting positively on four cardinal points which are environmental sanitation and beautification, traffic management, safety and security as well as stakeholders’ engagement in line with the THEMES agenda of the present administration.

While calling for greater synergy of operations among all government agencies operating within the Ikeja CBD, he disclosed “that CBD operatives will work closely with other government agencies like LASTMA, Fire Services, Safety Commission, and LASEMA amongst others to create the much desired conducive business environment within the Ikeja CBD.
