Lagos Bans Interstate Vehicles along Ikorodu Road. by shervydman(m): 4:26pm On Sep 13
The Lagos State Government on Wednesday announced the restriction of the operation of inter- state buses and vehicles operating along Ikorodu Road from going beyond Ojodu Berger and Ojota Motor Parks .
The State Government has also issued a seven - day ultimatum to the operators to relocate to the designated inter - state motor parks at Ojodu Berger and Ojota, after which stiff sanctions would apply to defaulters .
Speaking after embarking on a joint inspection tour of ongoing construction of Modern Bus Terminal at Yaba and the beautification project at Jibowu , the State ’ s Commissioner for Information and Strategy , Mr Steve Ayorinde , said the decision of the government was in line with the determination of Governor Akinwunmi Ambode ’ s administration to free the city of avoidable nuisances and install sanity and civility in the environment .
He said the inspection was a follow-up to an earlier visit by the Governor to the area , adding that all the necessary quit notices have already been served on the affected operators .
He said : “ This is a follow- up on the visit of Governor Ambode to this axis last night and was very displeased with what he saw particularly in the manner with which long buses , inter -state buses are using the main town and what we have done so far is the initial announcement to say that henceforth , we will no longer allow inter - state buses to be along Ikorodu Road.
“ Henceforth, they will have to go to Ojota and Ojodu Berger which are the two designated inter - state motor parks . The ones that we have here in Jibowu will have to move and there is a 7 - day ultimatum for everyone of them beginning from the ones in this axis to move, ” Ayorinde said .
Speaking on the reason for the ban , the Commissioner said activities of the operators had not been tidy and decent despite repeated warnings , and that government could no longer sit and watch such to continue in the overall interest of the people.

Before the implementation of the BRT on Ikorodu Road, users of the road usually experience horrendous traffic gridlocks, caused by impatience and bad driving habits of drivers in Lagos. Ikorodu Road became counter-productive and the economy of Lagos State suffered tremendously for this. The Lagos State Government in ameliorating the situation sought the transfer of the road to it for the implementation of the Bus Rapid Transit system. The Federal Government under the administration of President Olusegun Obasanjo promptly transferred the road to the Lagos State Government having been convinced of the benefits of implementing a BRT system on the road, one of the longest and busiest in the state.

Development is good, but it should have some human face!

Seven days is not good enough; too short!

Again, so if people want to travel interstate they have to come from their various distant homes to Ojota, right? How about creating clusters of interstate parks at at least four or five places?

Well, new ideas are not always the best. Existing protocols can be modified for better service.

I'm not the governor of Lagos, anyway.

Will this solve the problem?
It will increase traffic on Ikorodu road by taxi and city buses coming into the park to pickup passengers into the city.
It will generate more agbero and tribal wars
