A statement signed by its General Manager, Mr. Tayo Akanle, stated that the Mobile App tagged “Lagos Traffic Radio 96.1FM”, is an innovative way of providing an additional platform to boost listenership and strengthen the existing relationship with the public.

“The Mobile App will complement the Station’s drive to provide timely, accurate traffic information and advisory to commuters within the Lagos metropolis and beyond. Lagosians should endeavour to leverage on it as an accessible means of getting comprehensive traffic information while on the move”, Akanle said.

He explained that the idea was borne out of the need to reach out to a larger audience, through timely notification and pop-ups, as such push notifications will assist users to conveniently navigate their way around the metropolis towards ensuring prompt arrival at their destination points.

The General Manager stated that the initiative, which is in line with the Traffic Management and Transportation component of the T.H.E.M.E.S development agenda of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu’s administration, is not only aimed at providing traffic information to listeners continually but also to create more awareness about the station within and outside the State.

In his words: “Lagos Traffic Radio 96.1FM App, which can be downloaded from Play Store for Android and Apple Store for Apple device users respectively, is an informative platform that is tailored, rich in content and designed for making true and sincere connection with our listeners”.

“The various features on the Mobile App, such as play and stop, live traffic updates, social media pages, eye witness, news and other reports will have a lasting impact on the listeners”, the General Manager noted.

The initiative is coming on the heels of recent steps taken by the organisation towards improving the brand and building a solid foundation for more participation in the digital communication atmosphere.

The Commander, U.S. Africa Command, U General Stephen Townsend, wrapped up a three-day West African visit February 22-25, 2021, with a stopover in Nigeria to meet with the nation’s leaders and further the long-standing partnership and security cooperation between the two countries.

A press statement by the Embassy on Friday, said: “During the visit, Townsend met with the Nigerian President’s Chief of Staff, Ibrahim Gambari, and National Security Adviser, Babagan Monguno, to discuss regional security issues and to express the command’s gratitude for the assistance provided during a hostage rescue operation last year.

“When we asked for their help, the Nigerian government answered the call. Our hostage recovery mission in October would have been impossible without their support.

“They quickly provided assistance that helped the U.S. military to save an American life. That is a strong example of our partnership with Nigeria.”

Townsend also met with senior military officials, including the Minister of Defence, Bashir Salihi Magash, and the Chief of Defence Staff, General Leo Irabor, to talk about on-going cooperation in the region and greater maritime security and threat mitigation.

Nigeria is a key partner in countering violent extremist organizations throughout the Lake Chad Basin.

Townsend said furthermore: “The bilateral relationship between Nigeria and the U.S. is built on several pillars including security cooperation.

“U.S. Africa Command will do our part to advance the security cooperation pillar, so that Nigerians can enjoy the more secure future they all deserve.”

As close partners, the U.S. and Nigeria have worked at ensuring the collaborative relationship continues to grow to include a commitment to interoperability. Nigeria purchased 12 A-29 Super Tucano light attack aircraft, which will be delivered later this year.

“Nigeria’s purchase of A-29 Super Tucano aircraft is another example of their commitment to interoperability and security in the region,” he added. “Our economic relationship with Nigeria is already strong, and we look forward to the continued strengthening of security relationships. Nigeria’s leaders understand the importance of a collaborative approach to ensuring stability in West Africa and partnering on areas of mutual interest.”

The Commander also met with the U.S. Ambassador to Nigeria, Mary Beth Leonard.

Leonard said: “General Townsend’s visit to Nigeria demonstrates the strategic importance the United States places on our bilateral relationship with Nigeria.

“Our security cooperation partnership with Nigeria’s military will strengthen the country’s capabilities to secure land and sea borders, enhance overall security, and combat terrorism in the North East.”

As part of the visit, Townsend participated in a wreath-laying ceremony at the Nigeria Military National Cemetery to honour those who have given their lives in the service of their nation.

During the visit, the delegation expressed their condolences for the seven service men killed in the crash of a Nigerian Air Force aircraft in Abuja.
