Mrs. Onoja Joy is an outstanding traffic warden who is the cynosure of all eyes in Lokoja Metropolis. and she has been described as a very passionate person who delivers her duties with love and commitment.
When she was asked about the zeal in the discharge of her duty, she said;
“I started working with the Nigerian police force in April 2003 and in those years I was privileged to serve in the Traffic unit of the Force. I count it a privilege because it has been a lifelong dream of mine to be a traffic warden, as a young lady, I will get really thrilled when I travel across highways and see traffic controllers gyrate in tune with the movement of vehicles. I would say to myself “I must surely become one of them someday”.
I have made lots of friends since I started this job and I am loved by old and young, rich and poor. What makes me stand out is the apparent energy and zest with which I discharge my duties. Most people have described me as having no shame and relying on some narcotic drug or the other to be able to do what I do, I simply ignore such comments because I am a proud born-again Christian belonging to the Deeper Life denomination up until I joined my husband’s Mountain of Fire Church. I have been given a couple of awards locally and I get financial gifts from people who appreciate what I do especially when they find out I am not just a wife but a mother of five.”
