The Chairman of Lagos State Branch of National Union of Road Transport Workers, Alhaji Tajudeen Agbede on Tuesday said the inter-state transport park at Odo-Iyaalaro in Ojota is now ready to receive the operators banned along Ikorodu Road.
Speaking through the Secretary of Ojota Main Garage Branch, Comrade Francis Olasanoye, Agbede said the government in partnership with the Union had prepared the Ojota Park and that it was ready for the inter-state operators to relocate.
“Last Friday, the Acting Commissioner for Transportation, Prince Anofiu Elegushi, visited this area with the State Chairman and we have cleared the new place where those affected by the ban will be operating from. We are fully ready to receive them and want to thank the State Government and Governor Akinwunmi Ambode for this development,” he said.
Meanwhile, some residents have lauded the decision to restrict the operation of inter-state buses and vehicles operating along Ikorodu Road from going beyond Ojodu Berger and Ojota Motor Parks.
Lagos State had last week announced the ban and hinged the decision on the need to free the Jibowu and Yaba axis and then protect the environment.
