President Muhammadu Buhari has directed that the Apapa gridlock be cleared up immediately.
The president also ordered the immediate removal of all trucks from the bridges and roads within Apapa and all adjoining streets leading to the area.
Apapa which is referred to as the gateway to the nation’s economy due to citing of ports and terminals there, has been known for gridlock which has crippled commercial activities.
Efforts of different governments to contain the situation have not yielded the desired result.
But in a series of tweets on Wednesday, May 22, 2019, the presidency gave truck operators and drivers 72 hours to vacate access roads to the port.
