Apapa traffic gridlock

Lagos is under siege, the overhead bridges are heavily laden with trucks sitting comfortably on them, consequent of a spill-over of the traffic logjam at Apapa.

They risk collapsing due to the burden they bear.

Furthermore, all roads leading to Apapa are under a lock-down.

Its entry/exit points, Ijora and Mile II, have been barricaded by oil tankers/ articulated trucks, thus effectively making Apapa inaccessible.

The nation suffers unquantified loss from this. Undoubtedly, Apapa is the hub of commercial/industrial activities in Lagos. The major seaports of Apapa and Tincan Island are sited here, plus other big industrial outfits.

Apapa is the hen that lays the golden egg, and yet, is shabbily treated. It gets almost nothing in return for its patrimony/patronage of our economy. The Old European Quarters is now a shadow of its old beauty.
