President Muhammadu Buhari has directed that the Apapa gridlock be cleared up immediately.

He also ordered the immediate removal of all trucks from the bridges and roads within Apapa and all adjoining streets leading to the area.

Referred to as the gateway to the nation’s economy due to citing of ports and terminals there, Apapa has been known for gridlock which has crippled commercial activities.

Efforts of different governments to contain the situation have not yielded the desired result.

But in a series of tweets on Wednesday, the presidency gave truck operators and drivers 72 hours to vacate access roads to the port.

On Monday, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, incoming governor of Lagos, listed clearing of Apapa gridlock as one of his priorities.

He promised to end the traffic congestion in Apapa within his first two months in office.
