The presidency on Tuesday, March 2, gave great news to pedestrians and motorists who make use of the road close to Apapa port in Lagos state.

Onochie used the development inspire hope in Nigeria by saying that nothing is impossible to achieve if there is a will to go for it.
"The trucks that caused the Apapa gridlock, creating chaos are all gone.
"We can do anything we set our hearts to do. What some of us lack is the political power to act and stand our grounds when wailers mobilise hatred.
Meanwhile, the executive vice-chairman of the Presidential Task Team on the Restoration of Law and Order in Apapa Port (PTT-RLO), Comrade Kayode Opeifa had said that the team restored sanity on the roads leading to the nation's busiest port.
