On Friday, Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, led a delegation to check out the traffic gridlock along Oshodi-Apapa Expressway, by Mile-2 Bus Stop. 

During the inspection Sanwo-Olu declared a zero tolerance on all environmental nuisances in the axis and the state at large.

The traffic situation in Oshodi-Apapa Expressway became an issue of concern in the last week.  The delegation led the inspection in response to public outcry, following the resurgence of gridlock around the Mile-2 axis occasioned by indiscriminate parking by truckers. The resultant effect has caused untold hardships to other motorists and residents plying the road.
