As part of measures to further ensure free flow of traffic on
some major streets in Benin City, particularly the Mission Road,
the Ministry of Transport has announced the prohibition of
parking on both sides of the Road up to Emokpae Primary School
from the King Square.
The same rule applies to parking from Dawson road
junction up to Payne Primary School on Upper Mission Road.
The Commissioner for Transport, Mr. Victor Enoghama
announced this today while addressing Traffic Control Officers in
He said the measure has become necessary to remove the
bottlenecks associated with free flow of traffic on Mission Road,
adding that efforts were being made to put no parking signs in
areas that are prohibited for parking.
While reiterating the resolve of the Ministry of Transport to
ensure pleasurable driving in the Benin Metropolis, the
Commissioner advised motorists to strictly observe all traffic
rules and regulations to avoid sanctions.

themselves in the course of their duty as anyone caught would
not only be dismissed but prosecuted.
Mr. Enoghama said that henceforth, traffic Control Officers
would work seven days a week to cover both Saturdays and
Sundays, adding that the goal of the present administration was
to create a Traffic Management Agency that would serve as a
model for other states to copy.
In particular, Mr. Enoghama warned against any form of
misdeameanour on the part of Traffic Officers as severe sanction
would be applied to anyone caught in any form of corruption ..
The commissioner said much as they were expected to be
strict in the discharge of their duty, they should also be civil in
dealing with members of the public.
