The Lagos state government has restricted movement on 18 major roads across the state in preparations for the presidential rally of President Muhammadu Buhari, TheCable reports.

 

The campaign would hold at the Teslim Balogun stadium in Surulere on Saturday, February 9.

 

Speaking at a press conference in Ikeja, Demola Seraki, a former minister of state for defence and chairman, transport committee on Buhari’s campaign visit to the state, said over 100,000 members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) were expected at the rally.

 

He said movement would be diverted on the roads to prevent motorists and commuters from being stranded.

 

Seriki, who advised motorists to stay away from the venue of the rally, said the traffic advisory was issued to ease movement.

 

“For instance, Alaka (by Lanre Shittu Motors) on the service lane, inwards stadium will be closed to traffic, while vehicles will be diverted to the stadium bridge on the main carriage way,” he said.

 

“Shitta, inwards stadium, will be closed to traffic and vehicles diverted to Adeniran Ogunsanya street or Akerele extension. Traffic from barracks to stadium on Funsho Williams avenue will be diverted to stadium bridge on the main carriage way to Alaka.”

 

He listed the affected roads as:

Funsho Williams Avenue, Surulere

Hyginus Omeje, Federal Road safety Corps (FRSC) sector commander for the state, said truck drivers would be restricted from entering the metropolis from Friday.

 

Residents have consistently criticised the closure of roads during the visits of very important personalities.
