President Muhammadu Buhari has reportedly issued a directive for the immediate clearing up of the Apapa gridlock and the restoration of sanity to the Port and its environs within two weeks.
A Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity (Office of the Vice President), Laolu Akande made this known in a statement, Daily Post reports.
The directive mandates the immediate removal of all trucks from the bridges and roads within Apapa and all adjoining streets leading into the Apapa axis.
To facilitate this important assignment, operators of trucks and tankers have also been directed to vacate the Port access roads within the next 72 hours.
This directive follows an emergency meeting convened by President Muhammadu Buhari and chaired by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, SAN, on the 25th of April, 2019.
The meeting proffered lasting solutions to the gridlock around the Lagos Ports, as the traffic congestion has continued to restrict all operations and livelihood in the area.
