Lagos—Members of Amuwo Odofin Local Government Council, Lagos have said All Progressives Congress, APC, government in the state will do everything possible to end issues of the traffic gridlock at Apapa-Oshodi Expressway before the end of this year.
The members, who paid a courtesy visit to Vanguard Corporate Headquartres, pointed out that the Lagos State APC government was working seriously on the issue because motorists were being robbed and cars damaged by criminals.
Council Leader, Mr Abimbola Oshodi, said: “When you look at those areas where the trailers are parked, you will see that they are very dirty. Though this Apapa/Oshodi traffic gridlock has been on for long, but we just came into government. We have registered our appeal to government at both levels for the needful to be done because we are both elected into office and we want to represent our people well.”
“I am directly disturbed with this as the Councillor of the area. We cannot keep watching people robbed or raped as a result of the traffic gridlock at Apapa/Oshodi Expressway. Recently, a man that was in a hospital ambulance on emergency died in the traffic. We may not be in government for years, but we are concerned about it.”
