In furtherance of the ongoing rehabilitation works on Ikorodu Road, Mile12 to Ketu corridor, the Lagos State Government will close down the service lane inward Lagos for repairs expected to last for a period of four weeks, commencing from Saturday 16th January, 2021.

A statement signed by the Honourable Commissioner for Transportation, Dr. Frederic Oladeinde, reaffirmed that the upgrade of the service lane inward Lagos from Chainage 1+900m (Ikosi Junction) to CH.2+479 (LAMATA Interchange project) is part of efforts of the Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu-led administration to ensure a seamless flow of traffic within the metropolis, especially along the ever-busy Ikorodu Road.

He also explained that the closure will affect the existing traffic management plan put in place, adding that the motoring public needs to be very cautious when driving along the corridor while using the diversion routes to reduce inconveniences.

According to him, in order to ease the work and ensure seamless flow of traffic on the axis, the Alausa Secretariat, Lagos-Ibadan Expressway bound motorists will be diverted through Oyero Street, Ohundun Street and Ikosi Road, while Lagos bound motorists will use the already completed main carriageway inward Lagos.

While advising road users to exit from “inward Lagos carriageway” at LAMATA interchange to connect the Third Axial Road as an alternative route, the Commissioner revealed that pavement works on the main carriageway inward Lagos had been completed, while inward Ikorodu will be completed in the next few days.

Oladeinde assured that adequate traffic management measures have been put in place to ease traffic congestion along the route, stressing that the steps will only be effective if motorists cooperate with the traffic management personnel deployed to the corridor.

The Commissioner, therefore, appealed to Lagosians to complement the present administration’s efforts with full compliance to directives and total adherence to the traffic laws to ensure better mobility during the course of the construction along the corridor.

The Commander, U.S. Africa Command, U General Stephen Townsend, wrapped up a three-day West African visit February 22-25, 2021, with a stopover in Nigeria to meet with the nation’s leaders and further the long-standing partnership and security cooperation between the two countries.

A press statement by the Embassy on Friday, said: “During the visit, Townsend met with the Nigerian President’s Chief of Staff, Ibrahim Gambari, and National Security Adviser, Babagan Monguno, to discuss regional security issues and to express the command’s gratitude for the assistance provided during a hostage rescue operation last year.

“When we asked for their help, the Nigerian government answered the call. Our hostage recovery mission in October would have been impossible without their support.

“They quickly provided assistance that helped the U.S. military to save an American life. That is a strong example of our partnership with Nigeria.”

Townsend also met with senior military officials, including the Minister of Defence, Bashir Salihi Magash, and the Chief of Defence Staff, General Leo Irabor, to talk about on-going cooperation in the region and greater maritime security and threat mitigation.

Nigeria is a key partner in countering violent extremist organizations throughout the Lake Chad Basin.

Townsend said furthermore: “The bilateral relationship between Nigeria and the U.S. is built on several pillars including security cooperation.

“U.S. Africa Command will do our part to advance the security cooperation pillar, so that Nigerians can enjoy the more secure future they all deserve.”

As close partners, the U.S. and Nigeria have worked at ensuring the collaborative relationship continues to grow to include a commitment to interoperability. Nigeria purchased 12 A-29 Super Tucano light attack aircraft, which will be delivered later this year.

“Nigeria’s purchase of A-29 Super Tucano aircraft is another example of their commitment to interoperability and security in the region,” he added. “Our economic relationship with Nigeria is already strong, and we look forward to the continued strengthening of security relationships. Nigeria’s leaders understand the importance of a collaborative approach to ensuring stability in West Africa and partnering on areas of mutual interest.”

The Commander also met with the U.S. Ambassador to Nigeria, Mary Beth Leonard.

Leonard said: “General Townsend’s visit to Nigeria demonstrates the strategic importance the United States places on our bilateral relationship with Nigeria.

“Our security cooperation partnership with Nigeria’s military will strengthen the country’s capabilities to secure land and sea borders, enhance overall security, and combat terrorism in the North East.”

As part of the visit, Townsend participated in a wreath-laying ceremony at the Nigeria Military National Cemetery to honour those who have given their lives in the service of their nation.

During the visit, the delegation expressed their condolences for the seven service men killed in the crash of a Nigerian Air Force aircraft in Abuja.
