 Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo has ordered the commencement of a 72-hour operation to clear the Apapa-Oshodi expressway gridlock.

Osinbajo gave the directive on Friday when he made an unscheduled stop at the Apapa port area for an assessment of the situation on the road.

Heavy-duty trucks parked on the road have caused traffic gridlock, obstructing vehicular movement around the axis over the past few days.

The vice-president directed the concerned authorities to restore normalcy on the expressway. He also urged ministries, departments and agencies (MDAs) to speed up the decongestion of the port.

According to the directive, the operation will be carried out through a collaborative effort of the police, navy, army, and air force.

Also included are the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Nigeria Security and Civil Defense Corps (NSCDC), Lagos State Transport Management Authority  (LASTMA), Lagos State Emergency Management Agency (LASEMA), container truck drivers, National Association of Road Transport Owners, Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG), road transport employers association of Nigeria .

Osinbajo was accompanied by Rotimi Amaechi, minister of transportation, to the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA) where he met with relevant officials.
