Governor-elect of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has promised to put an end to the overcrowding at Apapa road, where trailers and containers cause heavy traffic, within the first 60 days of his administration.
“There is a lot of politics being played around there. But no, it cannot be the way we’ll continue to live. We cannot continue to give excuses” he said.
Sanwo-Olu made the promise on Saturday during an interactive session with his classmates at the Executive Master of Business Administration class, University of Lagos, 1998/2000 set.
At the event, the governor promised to get rid of the gridlock that has characterized Apapa road for many years irrespective of the politics involved.
He said, “The Apapa trailer issue; it’s a campaign issue; it’s very serious; I’m going to take it very seriously. “I believe that it is something that we are going to solve in the first 60 days of our government.
Whatever is going to be required of us, we will take them out. “There is a lot of politics being played around there. But no, it cannot be the way we’ll continue to live. We cannot continue to give excuses.”
