Apapa road to be closed for one-year as FG begins reconstruction

A section of the Apapa Wharf road will be shut down for a year to allow engineers carry out reconstruction of the road that has been in a deplorable state for many years.

Minister of Works, Power and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, disclosed this at the signing of a N4.34 Billion Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Dangote Group and other stakeholders for the reconstruction of the road in Lagos today June 17th.


The reconstruction according to Fashola, will be funded by AG Dangote Construction Company Ltd, an arm of the Dangote Group, the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA) and Flour Mills of Nigeria. He said the use of AG Dangote for the construction of the 2 kilometer road was to give the very important road a better outlook with the use of concrete. Fashola added that the reconstruction kicks off today June 17th. He appealed to residents of the state to persevere as the reconstruction exercise goes on.
“We are embarking on what will be the final solution to the massive inconvenience. Businesses and residents in Apapa and its environment have had to endure for a couple of years. I like to acknowledge the leadership role of Dangote and Flour Mills who are operators and have also contributed to make this reality. They are doing this as a total Corporate Responsibility without asking for tax holiday or reduction. We are also working on how to ensure free access to Tin Can Island. From today that we are handing over the project, the road will take one year to be completed. We need the cooperation of all the stakeholders. There will be some discomfort on the way but we appeal for tolerance and perseverance. It will continue to get better, people should please ensure more to solve the challenge.”

Nigeria is a silly town governed by incompetent goons...2kilometres rd to be closed for a whole year for construction. No gutter will still be provided so it can get bad easily & be closed for another 4years...Why why Dangote? Linda why are your friends in government misbehaving so much?

It's obvious you don't understand when you read. IT SAYS DANGOTE AND FLOURMILLS ARE DOING THE CONSTRUCTUON AT THEIR OWN COST MEANING IT IS A CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY PROJECT. Also note that concrete will be used instead of asphalt which will take longer time

Well,as long as they get it fixed.Previous governments didn't fix it nor got someone to.It is still progress.

Linda this headline is very misleading and generates very negative response.
The headline says "Apapa road to be closed for one-year..." whereas you have it in the details that it is only a section of the road that will be closed. Why not just say that in the headline?
People who only read headlines will go away with a wrong message.
This is how the press sensationalize headlines just to sell their stories but end up passing the wrong message to people.
The press should be more responsible and look beyond their selfish motives
