He, therefore, solicited for more collaboration and support from the State House of Assembly for improved performance.

Responding, the Speaker Olakunle Oluomo, who lauded the Corps for being proactive and supportive to TRACE, assured them of more legislative support.

He urged the Corps to engage and sensitize the State Chapter of the Association of Granite Suppliers and Haulers on the need to properly adhere to road traffic regulations including covering of their content so as to avoid causing unnecessary danger for other road users.

The Speaker tasked the officers and men of the Corps to be more diligent in the discharge of their duties, especially on the highway, assuring that the 9th Legislature in the State remains supportive to the Corps in its quest for improved service delivery.
