The Lagos State Government has announced that traffic will be restricted from Monday 23rd January and Tuesday 24th January 2023 in preparation for the visit of the President to Lagos State.

In a statement released by the Lagos State Ministry of Transportation, the Commissioner, Dr. Frederic Oladeinde assured that alternative routes have been mapped out, as well as the deployment of the State Traffic Management Authority, LASTMA to manage Traffic flow during the 2-day visit.

On the Second day Tuesday 24th, movement around Eko Hotels and Suites, Ahmadu Bello Way, J-Randle through to Broad Street and Outer Marina will be diverted from 6.00 am to 3.00 pm.

The options according to the movement plan will have Motorists diverted from Ahmadu Bello Way, Ademola Adetokunbo, and Akin Adesola Street to Falomo Bridge (Five Cowries Bridge), to Alfred Rewane Road to connect their desired destinations.

While Motorists that are Onikan bound from Ozumba Mbadiwe and Bonny Camp are enjoined to make use of Falomo Bridge (Five Cowries Bridge) or Awolowo Road. Motorists from Awolowo Road heading to Onikan Roundabout, Tinubu Square, or any other part of the inner Island will make use of Falomo Roundabout to link Alfred Rewane to further their journeys.
