He explained that the agency chose the riverine localities of Ojo and Oto-Awori to hold the sensitisation meeting because of the incessant gridlock caused by ongoing road construction projects in the area. Water Transport

He said, “As the state government is paying priority to rehabilitate the road along the Lagos-Badagry Expressway, which comes with its attendant inconveniences to road users, it will be expedient at this moment for the people to make use of the waterways, especially when commuting to Lagos Island, Ikorodu and Badagry. LAGFERRY boats are readily available at the Ebute-Ojo Terminal with adequate car park facilities. They are safe, comfortable, timely and efficient.” Water Transport
