Today,the Ojota pedestrian bridge experienced human congestion as never seen before as KAI officials positioned themselves at every corners of the bus stop,ready to arrest and fine whoever crosses the road.The use of pedestrian bridge is compulsory and backed by law in the state
As a result,Lagosians who fear being arrested and fined were forced to make use of the bridge,thereby congesting the pedestrian bridge.
Lagos State Governor Akinwunmi Ambode has appealed to Lagosians to bear with the government over the lingering shortage of fuel and power across the state.
Ambode, in a statement by the Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Steve Ayorinde, said Lagos consumes more than 40 per cent of the fuel and energy needs of the country and knows that the impact of the scarcity would be felt more in the state.
He urged residents to remain calm, orderly and law-abiding as government is doing everything possible within its power to find a solution to the crisis.
“I share the pain and discomfort of Lagosians and assure them that President Muhammadu Buhari is deeply touched by the situation and is working to alleviate their suffering,” Amode stated.
