The National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) says it has banned sales of alcoholic drinks in all motor parks in Lagos State ahead of the festive period.

Mr Tajudeen Agbede, the Lagos State Chairman of NURTW, made this known on Monday in an interview. Agbede said that the union has set up a task force to enforce the ban in various motor parks across the state.

“We don’t want to experience any form of accident on the highways as a result of alcoholic drinks during the festive period. “We have four units of the task force going round the motor parks, at least three times a week, to enforce the ban on sales of alcoholic drinks within and outside our parks,” he said.

Agbede also appealed to the commuters to board vehicles at the designated motor parks for security of their lives and property instead of boarding unsafe vehicles by the roadside. He said that the union has also put in place some security measures in all the parks to guarantee safety of the commuters.

“Our motor parks are safe to board vehicles to anywhere you are going to in the country,” he said.
