NGO urges NASS to pass traffic warden service bill  

National Coordinator of Greater Virtue for Traffic Watch & Development Initiative, a Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO), Dr. Jonah Johnsonapla, has called for the collective collaboration of the various traffic sub-sectors to achieve national goals.

Speaking at a press conference in Abuja, the national coordinator of the group said, “The struggle to make Nigeria strong, virile and an enviable socio-economy, is certainly beyond one organisation.”

Johnsonapla, therefore, implored the 10th National Assembly to immediately pass the Traffic Warden Service (TWS) Nigeria bill already before it for presidential assent.

The group noted that the bill was earlier passed by the 8th NASS. 

He added that TWS Nigeria was on hand to take her track lane among other organisations in the service of the nation for effective performance of its function.

“The TWS is now on hand to fully take her place in the service of the nation and perform her statutory function as an independent Agency among security Agencies as established”.

According to Dr. Johnsonapla, the traffic warden service establishment had recently been de-merged from Nigeria Police, following the repeal of Decree 21 of 21 of 1975, which was embedded in Section 59 – 60 of Police Act CAP 359 LFN 1990 and re-enacted Traffic Warden Service Act 2019 by NASS.
