Sanwo-Olu threatens to expose those benefiting from Apapa gridlock

 


The Governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has threatened to name those benefitting from the perennial traffic gridlock and chaos experienced along the Apapa corridor in the state.

Sanwo-Olu stated this while commending the Nigerian Ports Authority for the new E-Call Up system for trucks going to the ports on Wednesday.

The Apapa area is notorious for chaos over the haphazard operations of container-laden trucks around the seaports.

Sanwo-Olu said, “We will name and shame them. We will bring out their names, be it a corporate organisation, be it a company, be it a Lagos State officer, be it a police officer, whoever it is, be it a union that will say that the solution that we have brought about will not work.

“They will go and answer to the citizen of Nigeria and the citizen of Lagos State and the citizen of Nigeria. We will bring them to the public courts for them to see that we are about seriousness; we cannot condone the recklessness and the carelessness that our citizens have gone through.

“And I want to use this opportunity to commend the Management of NPA because they have worked with us on this agenda. So, my challenge is to others who have not signed on to this wonderful column system.”
