Lagos State Government on Tuesday sealed off the premises of Chisco Transport, Ifex Express Limited, GUO Transport, and other major commercial transport operators in Jibowu area of Yaba, Lagos.

Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Transportation, Olufemi Salami, acting on the approval of the Acting Commissioner for Transportation, Anofiu Elegushi, said the move has become imperative in view of the need to enforce the state government’s relocation plan for all inter-state buses to be moved from Jibowu to Ojota.

Other transport companies sealed off included God Is Good Motors (GIGM) and Peace Mass Transport, were ordered to immediately stop operation of cargo services around Jibowu.

Salami recalled that Governor Akinwunmi Ambode, had earlier this year asked all transporters operating around the Jibowu and the stretch of Ikorodu Road, to relocate their operations to Ojota, where the government had provided a land to accommodate them, now known as ‘Ojota Luxury Bus Station’.

According to him, the Ojota luxury bus station was being made ready by a concessionaire with whom government had entered into an agreement to build it, with modern facilities, provided, adding that all that the transporters were required to do was to comply with the government’s directive to relocate to the new station.

The Permanent Secretary added that the transporters would be expected to pay the concessionaire, to use the new bus station, but that the amount to be paid would be negotiated.
