Ambode's Gifts To Vulcanizers Are Springing Up All Over Lagos (PHOTOS) by AutoJoshNG: 12:18pm On Jul 08
A few days before he left office as the Governor of Lagos State, Akinwunmi Ambode commissioned about 1000 Vulcanizer stands and distributed them for free to vulcanizers in Lagos state.

The stands dubbed Ubiquitous Box for Vulcanisers (UV-Box) were designed to upgrade the operations of vulcanizers and enhance the vocation.

The beneficiaries are members of the Lagos State Vulcanisers Association drawn from the five divisions of the state.



The governor, during the distribution of the tools, noted that the gesture was to support the informal sector for its contributions to the state economy.

The Ubiquitous Box for Vulcanisers (UV-Box) is the pilot phase of the Ubiquitous Box for commercial roadside operators designed by the state government as a three-pronged empowerment scheme aimed at relocating and regulating registered street traders in our state.

According to Ambode, the state government decided to accommodate commercial roadside operators in aesthetic, safe and environmentally-friendly units in government-approved designated areas such that mobile artisans and traders would no longer cause obstruction to free flow of traffic or litter the streets with waste.

In order to recover government’s expenditure on the project, each UV-Box has been designed to generate revenue for the state government through subscription for use of advert panels /billboards by interested members of the public under the supervision of the Ministry of Commerce, Industry and Cooperatives.

Though the UV-Boxes were being given to the beneficiaries free of charge, they remain the property of the state government till December 2023.

However, if the Box is lost or stolen within a specified period, the beneficiary will pay the cost of the UV-Box, which is N323,300  to the State Government.

Honestly Ambode did lots of good work as Lagos state governnor. Truly I don't live in Lagos but Lagos is my second home because I travelled at least twice or 3 times to Lagos on weekly basis so don't quote me.

He knows what is right although nobody is perfect but please let's applaud the positive side of people!

Oshodi terminal is still under construction but a visit to the place shows he is a man who's ready to transform Lagos state for the better. The metal fence constructed along highways to prevent pedestrian crossing the highway instead of to use bridge should be applauded.

The new Lagos bus is a very good project, please board the bus once & come back here to share your experience because the bus reduced transport fare by 50% e.g Oshodi to berger is 300naira(danfo with pako seat) whereas fully air condition bus new Lagos bus goes for 150naira for same journey.

I've seen many of those.

Commendable.

He had his successes and failures. Typical for every human being. He had a fashola's record to beat (or try beating).

Thing is, we are suckers. We fell for one that trained on how to promise.

We should not expect too much from Mr Sanwo- olu. He played the Buhari campaign strategy well, aside being a baby boy of an aforementioned former Governor.

Whose record is Mr Sanwo-olu trying to beat? Probably DJ Exclusive. Because he should know (as a Christian), the righteous can do nothing on faulty foundation.

This is simplified dividend of democracy. Think about the multiplier effects on 1000 of them @ least to their immediate families?
Consider these facts;
1. @ least they have hope of paying for transport to work
2. @ least they have hope of feeding their families
3. @ least they have hope of paying rent by year end
4. @ least they have hope of paying PHCN bill
5. @ least they have hope of employing others
6. @ least they have hope of saving for sch fees
7. @ least they have hope of paying for their drinks
... @ least they have hope of better tomorrow.
On economic view, those the removed him can be on account of poor performance maybe...on something invisible

Auto Josh no picture for us this time?

There are many benefits of investing in ice block production, there will always be demand for Ice block by people selling soft drink and water by the road side,
sachet water hawkers, hotels, event centers for wedding, meeting and other occasions to cool drinks and so many more.

Take advantage of this opportunity and get your machine at the cheapest rate in Nigeria from the only available four in my stock. They are working and I will beat any price anywhere.... Link below

Guess you expect them to be doing that kinda work on their birthday clothes.

As long as they can feed their their family members on a daily basis, that is all that matters.

Do not look down or castigate anyone's livelihood.
Be wise Joromi Joromi! wink
