LASTMA reels out traffic rule to follow in Lagos ahead of Super Eagles’ qualifying match against Lesotho.
Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA) has published the traffic rules to be strictly adhered to by road users ahead of Tuesday’s Super Eagles match against the Likuena of Lesotho.
The match will take place at the Teslim Balogun Stadium, Lagos. This fixture would be last Super Eagle’s qualifying tie ahead of 2022 Africa Cup of Nations.
LASTMA made this known via a statement on its twitter handle which read:
“All vehicular movement around the stadium must stop from 10am till 10pm.
Vehicles approaching Teslim Balogun from Ojuelegba and Alaka/Eric Moore can only pass by on the flyover.
ONLY vehicles with VVIP stickers or tickets can approach the stadium to park in the National Stadium.
ONLY vehicles with VVIP stickers or carrying persons with VVIP tickets can drive into and park in Teslim Balogun.
ONLY cars carrying passengers with tickets can approach and enter National Stadium to park.
Please cooperate with all traffic officials along the route to ensure traffic keeps moving.
All inconveniences regretted.”
Recall that Nigeria ended Benin Republic’s eight-year unbeaten run at home when they completed the double over their West African rivals in the 2022 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying series.
Paul Onuachu’s late header clinched a 1-0 win in Porto Novo on Saturday. The Super Eagles had come from a goal down last year to beat the Squirrels 2-1.
However, away from home, Gernot Rohr’s men found it tough, until the final moments of the game.
The three-time African champions had already qualified for the tournament before kick-off, thanks to Lesotho’s goalless draw with Sierra Leone earlier in the day.
With one round of fixtures left, Nigeria lead Group L with 11 points, four more than Benin.
