The residents of Ojo Local Government Area decried the persistent traffic at almost every notable junction of the Ojo axis – federal road. The persistent traffic is usually caused by flood, potholes, one-way drivers, and stationed cars.

According to our correspondent, the road is the major axis to the Badagry Local Government and most people transport through this path to other areas for their means of livelihood. However, due to the traffic, many have been denied their ‘daily bread’ especially during rainy season.

Also, Ojo road is the road leading to two higher institutions owned by the state government: Lagos State University (LASU) and Adeniran Ogunsanya College of Education (AOCOED). This further imposed hardship on the students.

Some days ago, there was a breakdown of a diesel tank at Iyanaiba and Barracks respectively causing an utmost blockage of motorcycles moving towards Agbara town.

A road usual identified as Mr Johnson lamented on how the tank drivers due to selfishness occupy the road without considering other users. He further implored the government to create another means of transportation to ease movement. He advised that the government should restrict them (the tanker drivers) from transporting in daylight in order to ease the affairs of the masses.

Johnson later acknowledged that the Ojo road has been under construction early this year but which residents do not know exactly what has refrained the government from it continuation.
