Nigerian president Muhammadu Buhari will be visiting Lagos state on Wednesday to commission five projects, the state government said on Tuesday.
The president, during the one-day visit, will be commissioning the projects which include the rehabilitated 10-lane Oshodi – Murtala Muhammed International Airport Road, the 170-Bed ‘Ayinke House’ (Maternity Hospital)) at the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH) Ikeja.
Others are the Lagos State Theatre at Oregun, Ikeja, 820 mass transit buses and the multi-level Oshodi Transport Interchange along the Apapa-Oshodi Expressway.
The Presidential visit will hold between the hours of 9.00am and 3.00pm during which traffic along the following routes will be diverted from Mobolaji Bank-Anthony Way (coming from the Presidential Wing of Murtala Mohammed Airport to LASUTH Under Bridge).
Also affected are Kodesoh Road, Obafemi Awolowo Way, Kudirat Abiola Way, Ikorodu Road (between Ojota Intersection and Anthony Interchange), Oworonshoki-Apapa Expressway (between Anthony and Oshodi Transport Interchange), International Airport Road through the Local Wing of the airport to Mobolaji Bank-Anthony Way and back to Obafemi Awolowo Way.
The State Ministry of Transportation, however, stated that the roads listed will only be cordoned-off when necessary, Obafemi Awolowo Way and portions of Mobolaji Bank-Anthony will be closed to traffic on three (3) occasions within the specified period as they are central to the President’s itinerary.
In order to ensure a free flow of traffic during the visit, the ministry advised motorists to avoid the highlighted roads and make use of alternative routes.
