Earlier today, I, the Honourable Commissioner for Transportation, Oluwaseun Osiyemi @seun_osiyemi, the SA on Transportation @Sola_Giwa, the SA on the Environment, Olakunle Rotimi Akodu @rotimi_akodu, PS ODS, Engr. Mahmood Adegbite @mogbite and other stakeholders visited the Obalende underbridge, Apongbon, Ijora and National Stadium underbridge where we gave a 4-day relocation notice to all squatters under the Obalende bridge as well as illegal motor parks operators and buses who have moved to the main road.

All shanties, dwellers, traders, squatters & abandoned vehicles presently under the Obalende bridge must vacate the area by Thursday afternoon as enforcement would commence in the early hours of Friday. Also, all commercial vehicle operators who are on the main roads in Obalende must relocate to the various parks provided for them because the government has had enough of the defacement of the aesthetics of Obalende by the operators and it must now be restored.

We also inspected the ongoing clean up of Apongbon Under-Bridge, Ebute Ero and other areas to monitor the level of compliance with Mr Governor’s directive that there should be no form of trading or habitation under the bridge and all adjoining areas across Lagos State.

The government is set to sustain clean and safe environment and in a couple of months, the Lagos State Parks and Gardens Agency (LASPARK) will move in after the deadline to commence work on the beautification and landscaping of Obalende under bridge, Apongbon Underbridge, Ebute Ero underbridge, while the clean up exercise spreads across the state.

Earlier at the Ilubirin, a strategic project of the Lagos State government which is meant to regenerate Isale Eko and to do that, there is a need to get the outflow of water through the Ilubirin path.

I have also directed that the Lagos State Environmental Sanitation Corps begin to arrest and immediately prosecute anyone crossing the highways across the State. Crossing the highways is prohibited by the Lagos State Environmental Sanitation Protection Law 2017.
