The directive was sent out in order to end the horrible traffic jam plaguing the area in recent weeks.

There was easy flow of traffic approaching Apapa from Mile 2, as the traffic jam which was usually encountered from Alaba through Coconut, Tin Can and Liverpool has almost disappeared.

Same goes for approaching Apapa from Iponri/Costain through the Ijora Causeway.

The National Vice Chairman (Lagos zone) of the Petroleum Tanker Drivers (PTD), Mr. Solomon Kilanko, said his members had been complying since Thursday.

“As drivers, we have informed the transport owners of the directive by the Lagos State government. Yesterday (Thursday), our leadership met with the national leadership of the National Association of Road Transport Owners (NARTO), and we both agreed all our tankers must be moved out of Lagos.

“We have started that and by this evening (yesterday), 80 per cent of our trucks are off the road. I believe by Sunday, the whole place would have been cleaned up and the remaining would be left with depot owners. We have also discussed with the Depot and Petroleum Products Marketers Association of Nigeria (DEPPMAN) to inform us once the product is available for us to come and lift.”
