Revive Ports In Other States, Ambode Tells FG over Apapa Gridlock

The Lagos State Governor, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode, has asked
the Federal Government to do everything within its powers to revive existing Ports in other States of the federation. He said that this will solve the existing traffic congestion at the Apapa axis of the State. The governor stated this on Tuesday during a town hall meeting in Ibeju Lekki Local Government.

He said the recent chaos witnessed in the area was beyond traffic issues, saying that concerted efforts must be made to revamp moribund ports. According to him, it is beyond getting other ports up and running, the issue of tankers queuing up to lift petroleum products from Tank Farms in Apapa was also a major issue causing gridlock and damaging road infrastructure in the area, which was affecting the economic growth of not just the State, but Nigeria in general.

The Governor also expressed concern about the approval for the development of tank farms in Ijegun area of Lagos, saying that as much as the State supports redistribution of tank farms, such should be located in areas that are not populated.
