such that we will be able to accommodate at least 3,000 trucks in the park.
In addition to that, we will work with security agencies and see how we can
move the trucks into the park because right now the park can accommodate about 300 trucks but the people are not using it, he said.

Ambode also responded to the complaint of the resident about the menace of motorcyclist by ordering the police and other security agencies to ensure that the rules are being adhered to and prosecute those that fall against it.

As part of his administration’s efforts to regenerate the axis, he said the Fadaini
road currently in a deplorable state would be fixed while Orile- Mile 2-Trade Fair-CMS road would also be repaired to open up alternative routes for motorists.

He also urge all Lagosians to ensure they get their permanent voters card, not to vote
for APC or any other party now, but to show that the real population is in Lagos State.
