All seems to be set for the 2-day working visit of President Muhammadu Buhari to Lagos State which kicks off on Thursday, March 29.
Consequently, the Lagos State Government has decleared Thursday a work-free day for personnel under its payroll.
In a statement, the state’s Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Mr Kehinde Bamgbetan, appealed to residents to adhere to security advice to make the visit peaceful and orderly.
Already, the state government has announced that there would be traffic diversions in some routes across the state to ensure a hitch free visit of the President.
The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Mr Imohimi Edgal, also announced that adequate measures have been taken to mitigate the effect of the route diversions on residents while access would be given to any emergency situation.
The Commissioner of Police therefore, appealed to Lagos residents to bear with the government within the period.
Mr Edgal, however, issued stern warning to commercial motorcycle operators to avoid restricted routes during the President’s visit. He also warned journalist not accredited to cover the visit to stay away to avoid embarrassment.
During the visit, President Buhari will inaugurate a deep seaport at Lekki Free Trade Zone, a modern bus terminal at Ikeja as well as attend the birthday of the APC leader, Bola Tinubu.
