Will the new Ikeja Bus Terminal make life better or worse for people in Lagos?

Lagos state has opened a new bus terminal in the heart of the city to help alleviate the problem of the traffic and go-slows - but do they also plan to remove the yellow danfos and make bus conductors wear suits? ► Subscribe to BattaBox on YouTube: ► Buy BattaBox T-Shirt: The new Ikeja bus terminal was commissioned by Buhari on March 28, 2018, together with Lagos Governor Ambode. “I commend the Governor for development and strides he recorded within the first three years of governance. I recognize the push of the State Government in reforming public transportation especially the Bus Reform Project which will make modern transport buses that are air-conditioned available to the people," said President Buhari. The Lagos state government has tried to do this before with BRT and LAGBUS, but many of the buses are now older and the uniforms in bad shape. "It won't work in Lagos," says one Nigerian street hustler. "The population is too much so they will still need danfo buses." "It should not take jobs from danfo drivers, and when people want to go to work, the danfos are the life savers," says one Lagos girl. But many Lagosians are hopeful that the new project will open p new areas in Lagos for property, business, as well as jobs. "It's very nice, the building and structure, it looks very modern," says one Nigerian guy. "And this road will make traffic flow a lot faster."

June 12: Ambode unveils 46-feet statue of MKO Abiola in Lagos - Daily Post Nigeria

Governor Akinwunmi Ambode of Lagos State, on Tuesday, unveiled a 46-feet statue of the presumed winner of the June 12, 1993 presidential election, Bashorun Moshood Kasimawo Olawale Abiola (MKO). Governor Ambode, who spoke at the unveiling of the statue at the MKO Abiola Garden in Alapere, Ketu noted that it was in the tradition of the state government to recognise and remember heroes and heroines who contributed to the greatness of the nation and the State in particular, adding that MKO Abiola deserves the best from the State as Lagos was his success story. “There was a statue done by my predecessor, Babatunde Raji Fashola but in the divine world, some things are more glorious than what you think and so we decided at the end of 2016 that we should do bigger statues for Chief Gani Fawehinmi and MKO Abiola since almost everybody passing and entering Lagos go through this particular Ojota axis and so we started late in 2016 that we should build something bigger and so it took us about a year to do this. “By the time we did the one for Gani to celebrate his posthumous birthday on April 22, we also agreed that we should unveil that of MKO Abiola today, June 12. “But just as if God has a way of crowning all efforts to mark the 25th Anniversary of June 12, our President, President Muhammadu Buhari has deemed it fit to give our own MKO Abiola the highest honour in the land, GCFR and that is why we believe strongly that your presence here is not just for this statue but it is also historic which we would always remember in the annals of the history and politics of this country that sooner than later, there would be one day we would mark as MKO Abiola Day. “We are very happy to gather here today at the MKO Abiola garden to unveil this statue, a monument that will forever crystallize his legacy, serves as a reminder to the greatness that Chief Abiola represents in our socio-political landscape,” the governor said. He described MKO Abiola as a man who transcended race, tribe and religion, adding that the late philanthropist appealed to all Nigerians who voted massively for him during the 1993 Presidential election. “Sadly, he lost his life trying to secure his mandate. Even though he was from another State, Lagos was his home. And we recognize his contribution to our State and our democracy,” Governor Ambode said. Responding on behalf of the family, MKO Abiola’s son, Abdul Mumuni Abiola thanked Governor Ambode and the Lagos State Government for the honour done the Abiola family, saying the statue was indeed befitting to honour his late father.
