Governor Sanwo-Olu Gives Traders 48 Hours to Clear Red Line Rail Tracks in Agege

Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has issued an ultimatum to traders occupying the red line rail tracks in Agege, giving them just 48 hours to vacate the area. This directive comes as part of the government’s efforts to ensure the safety and efficiency of the ongoing red line rail project.


The announcement was made during Governor Sanwo-Olu’s visit to the Agege Station as part of his tour to inspect the progress of the red line rail project. In a video posted on the Senior Special Assistant on New Media to the governor, Jubril Gawat’s handle, the governor addressed the traders, emphasizing the importance of clearing the tracks.


Sanwo-Olu stated that the entire rail tracks would be securely walled off to prevent any unauthorized access. He made it clear that the rail infrastructure was intended for transportation purposes and not for trading activities.


“It is a government road, and that’s why the government has invested in building this rail infrastructure. It is meant for transportation, not for markets. I am giving you just 48 hours to vacate this area; you cannot stay here. Our priority is to ensure the safety of everyone. Once the train operations commence, it will regularly use this route, and we must avoid any unfortunate incidents,” the governor firmly stated.


Earlier this month, Governor Sanwo-Olu inaugurated the commercial operations of the train service in Lagos State, marking a significant step towards enhancing public transportation. He personally rode on the maiden passenger operation on the Blue line rail, traveling from Marina Terminal to Mile-2 Station.


As Lagos continues to invest in modernizing its transportation infrastructure, the governor’s ultimatum to clear the red line rail tracks in Agege reflects the commitment to ensuring safety and efficiency in public transportation. It also sends a strong message that the government is determined to enforce regulations for the benefit of all citizens.


This development signals hope for improved transportation and infrastructure in Lagos, making it a safer and more efficient place for residents and commuters.
