Veteran comedian, Ali Baba has suggested to incumbent Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-olu that there exists an automated system that will not only solve much of the perennial traffic problems in Lagos but also help generate huge sum for development.
In a Instagram post on Tuesday, the Delta State-born humour merchant shared the suggestion, tagging Lagos Staye governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, in the social media post.
Stemming from a recent experience he had which led to spending 3 hours in traffic after an event at V/I, Ali Baba wrote: “A thought hit me. If @jidesanwoolu wants to make extra N200b to develop Lagos, he should just invest in CCTVs at major and busy junctions. With STOP signs to boot. Borrow money fix the roads and drainages. Then set up a system that will get drivers and vehicles to be linked together. When you are caught on tape, beating the traffic lights or breaking traffic laws, you will just get the alert that the payment has been deducted from your account.
“To make this work, each car will have its registration number linked to the BVN of the owner. No need to set up any other means of collecting the money. And if you sell the car, you must go to the licensing office to change the BVN. Failure to do that means whoever drives the car and commits an offence, will not be debited. The original owner pays.
“If it’s a military vehicle, the debit comes from the military account. Same with corporate bodies. Individuals too.”
