The Lagos State Government on Wednesday issued a seven-day ultimatum to inter-state transport operators to vacate Ikorodu Road.

Mr Steve Ayorinde, the Commissioner for Information and Strategy, disclosed this during the inspection of inter-state bus terminals on Ikorodu road.
He said that Gov. Akinwunmi Ambode toured the area on Tuesday night and was very displeased with the manner in which the inter- state transport operators were using the main town.
“We are, however, saying that henceforth, we will no longer allow inter-state buses to operate along Ikorodu Road; they will have to move to Ojota and Ojodu-Berger bus terminals designated for them by the state government.
“And there is a seven-day ultimatum for them to move, starting from today. It is for the benefit of the residents because their operations here are not decent and tidy,” Ayorinde said.
Also speaking to journalists, Mr Anofi Elegushi, Special Adviser to the Governor on Transport, said that arrangements had been made for the relocation and quit notice served.
Elegusi said the relocation was to better utilise the flyovers for better purposes, such as beautification and security.
