Former Head of Interim National Government’s Interment Slated For February 4
The Lagos State Government will divert traffic along Inner and Outer Marina, by Oando Filling Station, from 5.00am till 6.00pm on Friday, 4th February 2022, due to the burial service of the late former Head of Interim National Government, Chief (Dr.) Ernest Shonekan.
In a statement released by the Ministry of Transportation, the Commissioner, Dr. Frederic Oladeinde, explained that all adjoining and feeder roads leading through Inner Marina to the NITEL building will be cordoned off.
He advised motorists to utilise JK Randle Street through Force Road to connect Broad Street and continue their journey as Inner Marina/Odunlami Street from Outer Marina will be barred from vehicular movement.
In the same vein, Oladeinde stated that motorists descending CMS Bridge to Cathedral Church of Christ, Marina, will be temporarily diverted to UBA Roundabout or Apongbon for onward navigation to other inner parts of Lagos Island to connect their destinations.
The Commissioner assured that Security and Law Enforcement Agencies will be deployed to all strategic junctions/intersections and black spots to reduce delays and ensure the security of lives and property both along the routes leading to the venue and alternative routes highlighted.
Extending appreciation to the citizenry for their patience and understanding, the State Government apologised for any inconvenience the temporary diversion might cause.
