Ahead of the proposed commissioning of the Dangote Refinery by President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday, the 22nd of May, 2023, the Lagos State Government has charged the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA) and other traffic enforcement Personnel to ensure effective management and control of traffic.
A statement released by the Lagos State Ministry of Transportation, duly signed by the Commissioner, Dr. Frederic Oladeinde noted Motorists should cooperate with the enforcement agencies for seamless flow of traffic.
The commissioner also urged residents to plan their movement in and out of the Lekki-Epe corridor between 8.00 am and 2.00 pm.
According to him, it becomes imperative for the State Government to alert the public, particularly regular road users in the Lekki-Epe zone, due to the high vehicular movement that will be witnessed in the axis as a result of the commissioning.
The Statement further urged residents to plan their journeys around the axis, in order to forestall avoidable delays in travel time.
