Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari will today arrive Lagos to commission some of the projects built by the Lagos State government within the past two years.
Some of the projects listed include the 10-lane Oshodi-Muritala Muhammed International Airport Road; the 170-bed ‘Ayinke House’(maternity hospital) at the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital, Ikeja; the Lagos State Theatre at Oregun, Ikeja; new 820 mass transit buses; and the multi-level Oshodi Transport Interchange along the Apapa-Oshodi Expressway.
The President was in Lagos in May last year to commission a bus terminal and many people who a miffed that the president’s visit will cause untold hardship to them said he should have also commissioned the bus last year.
Already several roads have been closed, includings “Mobolaji Bank-Anthony Way (coming from the Presidential Wing of Murtala Mohammed Airport to LASUTH Under Bridge); Kodesoh Road; Obafemi Awolowo Way; Kudirat Abiola Way; Ikorodu Road (between Ojota Intersection and Anthony Interchange); Oworonshoki-Apapa Expressway (between Anthony and Oshodi Transport Interchange); International Airport Road through the Local Wing of the airport to Mobolaji Bank-Anthony Way; and back to Obafemi Awolowo W
Already, Lagos state government has issued a travel warning urging motorists to avoid these routes.
