INSIDEMAINLAND– The Lagos State Government assured residents and motorists on Friday that it would continue to engage relevant stakeholders until traffic gridlocks around the Apapa-Port axis were completely eliminated.
Sola Giwa, the Special Adviser to the Governor on Transportation, made the announcement at the Ministry of Transportation, Alausa, Ikeja, during an interactive meeting with relevant stakeholders, including officials from the Nigerian Port Authority, on permanent solutions to Apapa traffic gridlocks.
Adebayo Taofiq, Director, of the Public Affairs and Enlightenment Department, Lagos State Traffic Management Authority, signed the statement.
Giwa stated in the statement that despite the success in managing traffic around Apapa with the introduction of the ‘Eto’ system to petroleum tankers, the State Government is still working tirelessly to resolve other issues.
Regardless of the delay, the Special Adviser maintained that the government was working to establish a process that would be seen as fair and beneficial to everyone.
He said, “When the road is free, motorists will move freely without traffic, and tankers turnover will be high.
“Traffic causes health, security, and other social problems”
