VIDEO: APC Shuts Down Lagos As Campaign Rally Holds


Commuters in Lagos State have expressed frustrations about the very severe traffic congestion they confronted on Tuesday. Motorists and commuters alike had a raw deal on Tuesday morning as the ruling All Progressives Congress’ rally led to widespread gridlock. See video by @TrafficChiefNG Eyewitnesses report that APC members started gathering at the party’s campaign headquarters early Tuesday morning, a situation that led to massive influx of vehicles and the attendant traffic jam. There was serious traffic hold-up on roads from the rally arena, spilling on to Ikeja Inside and the Lagos-Abeokuta Expressway. The situation was compounded by the ongoing roadworks in the axis, which regularly lead to traffic jams at peak hours of the mornings and evenings. In areas such as the Ikeja Inside by Guinness and the Old Agege Motor Road, officials of the Lagos State Management Authority directed the heavy traffic. The same was not the case on the federal highway such as the Lagos-Abeokuta Motor Road, however, leading to bedlam as drivers resorted to driving against the traffic. An exasperated driver who preferred anonymity said she spent over three hours on a journey that, ordinarily, should last just about 55 minutes. Lagosians urge the ruling party and Governor Akinwunmi Ambode to always take road users into consideration when planning any event. PUNCH Contact Editor using or call direct 0808 360 9209. READ ALSO!
