Sanwo-Olu threatens to name, shame prominent Nigerians behind Apapa gridlock


Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State said he would expose prominent Nigerians responsible for the gridlock in Apapa.

Sanwo-Olu issued this threat while inaugurating the newly reconfigured Lekki 1 and 2 Abraham Adesanya Roundabouts, Lekki, on Wednesday, according to a statement his Chief Press Secretary, Gboyega Akosile released.

In it, the governor was quoted that he would pull out all the stops to ensure Apapa is rid of traffic congestion.

It read in part, “We will not stop at anything to ensure that anybody that tries to retract and take us back to where we are coming from on the gridlock on Apapa; we will do everything that we can to fight those people.

“We will name and shame them, we will bring out their names, be it a corporate organisation, company, police officer; they will go and answer to the citizens of Nigeria and Lagos. We will bring them to the public court for them to see that we are serious.

 “We cannot condone the recklessness and carelessness that our citizens have gone through. My appeal is to others who have not signed on to this call-up system that we have embarked upon to do so.”
