Apapa Gridlock: Lagos Govt to take over traffic management


The Lagos State Government has said it would take over the management of traffic in the Apapa Area of the state from the Presidential Task Force Team.

“Our plan is to bring about a cohesive system where all stakeholders would understand their roles and resolve challenges being encountered. Since last year, the Presidential Taskforce has been working on this issue,” Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu said during a fact-finding visit to Apapa, on Monday.

“Now, there is a process that is starting in which the State Government is taking over the task force.” While giving details about the planned takeover, the Lagos governor explained that “We will have a team of policemen and LASTMA dedicated to Apapa Ports for enforcement of task force’s mandates.”
