On Tuesday, President Muhammadu Buhari gave truck drivers 72 hours to vacate access roads to the port in Apapa, Lagos.
He also ordered the immediate removal of all trucks from the bridges and roads within Apapa and all adjoining streets leading to the area.
The order was meant to clear gridlock in the area referred to as the gateway to the nation’s economy. Although the area is known for heavy vehicular movement, articulated trucks have worsened the traffic congestion.
When TheCable visited on Saturday, trucks were still seen on Eko bridge, Ijora bridge, Apapa bridge and other roads that lead to the port.
