Trucks Back To Ikorodu Road Following Sanwo-Olu's Visit To Apapa - Photos

Following the Presidential directive for the evacuation of trucks and trailers from Lagos roads of which a Presidential committee was charged with carrying out the responsibility, the committee gave a 72 hours ultimatum to trucks and trailers operators to be on queue to move into the Apapa ports and leave the bridges and roads which has been converted into vehicle park, creating traffic gridlock and constituting a nuisance to other road users.

Of note is the success recorded with the evacuation of the trucks and trailers from Ikorodu road and Eko bridge at the expiration of the 72 hours ultimatum on Sunday 26th May, 2019. While the committee was about moving to the Apapa Mile 2 axis, the Ikorodu road and Eko bridge suffered a relapse of trailers and trucks reemergence in the last 12 hours as a result of the blockade of the roads into the Apapa port as a security measure for the physical inspection of the Apapa ports area and environs by Governor Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu, his deputy Dr. Obafemi Kadri Hamzat and security chiefs yesterday Thursday 30th May, 2019.


Consequent upon the blockade of the roads by the security agencies for hours which prevented the trucks from accessing the Apapa ports easily like they have been doing in the last 96 hours following the Presidential committee evacuation of impediments to the ports, the resultant effect of that security blockade is the emergence of trailers and trucks back on Ikorodu road from National stadium Surulere all the way to the Costain/Apapa road Ebute Metta axis of the Eko bridge since last night of Thursday 30th May, 2019 as shown in the images attached till this morning of Friday 31st of May, 2019.

The Presidential committee is resolved and working round the clock to ensure that the trucks and trailers are evacuated from the Ikorodu road and Eko bridge where they have suddenly reemerged as well as on the Apapa Mile 2 Oshodi expressway corridor where they have locked down Lagos traffic and constituted public nuisance within the shortest possible time, while calling for the support and cooperation of Lagosians in carrying out the Presidential directive to the latter within the stipulated 2 weeks.

The patience and understanding of the motoring public is highly appreciated in making Lagos roads and bridges free of parked trailers and trucks and the Apapa ports accessible for the ease of doing business.
