Some of these travelers spent hours on a journey that ordinarily should not be more than an hour.

Kuti said that the entire Lagos-Ibadan expressway, both inward and outward Lagos, will be completed in December 2022.”

He also said that the traffic in the area was normal and would last till the end of the ongoing construction on the busy road.

He said,

“You can’t expect less from a road that is under construction and at the same time being used by people. Of course, there will be traffic and one thing people should know is that this particular highway is the busiest in the whole of West Africa.

So, whatever people are experiencing there now is something we expected, because this road carries the whole traffic of all the 36 States.”

Furthermore, he said that coming on four-lane into a construction zone, and in that construction zone, you cant speed. The allowable speed in a construction zone is 30km/h. But now we are not getting that 30km/h because when you stay longer, it is either a vehicle must have broken down, most especially at the diversion area.”

“Some of them, in trying to divert, will be struggling with each other and in the process, there will be an accident. Some even stop by to pick up passengers, while some people do petty business in the same area.” Kuti added.
