JUST IN: Call-Up System Collapses On Oshodi-Apapa Expressway, Motorists In Standstill


Contrary to expectation on the free flow of traffic following the commencement of the Call-Up system for port operations, Oshodi-Apapa Expressway has been on a total lockdown as fuel tankers and containerized vehicles parked indiscriminately along the road.

This happened as Lagos State Governor, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu, vowed to publicly mention the names of prominent Nigerians behind the gridlock situation in Apapa and environs.

Recall that barely 72 hours into the commencement of the new Call-Up System on Saturday, February 27, 2021, into the administration of port operations introduced by the Nigerian Ports Authority, NPA, Lagos State Special Traffic Management Enforcement Team has expressed determination to sustain the new order in Apapa and environs as gridlock eases off.

The newly created Lagos special traffic team is headed by Special Adviser to the Governor on Transportation, Oluwatoyin Fayinka, other members include the Senior Special Assistant to the Governor on Central Business Districts, Sola Giwa, Senior Special Assistant to the Governor on Political Security Intelligence, Ayodeji Laurent, Lagos State Commissioner of Police, CP. Hakeem Odumosu and General Manager, Lagos State Traffic Management Authority, LASTMA, Engr. Olajide Oduyoye.

However, gridlock resurfaced along Oshodi Apapa Expressway today, as motorists and residents were stuck in traffic for several hours due to indiscriminate parking by truck drivers.

No personnel of the new Lagos Special traffic management team could be sighted, only touts and truck drivers were seen controlling traffic that was not moving.
