Lagos State Governor, Babatunde Raji Fashola while addressing the Apapa road situation says he wonders why everything is falling into pieces under the Jonathan led administration. He said the horrific traffic being experienced by business owners and residents of Apapa has continued to inflict untold hardship on them and it will also be of note that the Nation is losing in this in terms of revenue.
“Businesses are shutting down in Apapa; people are living a very traumatic life. The entire roads have collapsed due to the movement of heavy tonnage. We have managed to create some order on the road but the entrance to the port is where the problem lies. So, it is lack of management on the part of those managing the port. It is obvious where the problem is emanating from. 90 percent of the fuels used in this country are distributed through this place.
“I just wonder why everything is falling into pieces under this federal government. Everything about the country is falling into pieces, and Apapa has not been spared. The port cannot be managed. The fuel distribution cannot be managed without causing so much pain,” he said.
