Buhari's Visit: Air Passengers Lament Their Sufferings As Routes To Lagos Airport Blocked

The Lagos State Government's declaration that Thursday will be a work free day in the state ahead of the president's two-day visit to the state, have led to untold suffering to airline passengers and other road travelers.

Following President Muhammadu Buhari’s planned visit to Lagos state on Thursday, major routes leading to Muritala Muhammad International Airport in Lagos, were blocked earlier this morning which caused pain to travellers, with some walking about two kilometres to get to the airport so as not to miss their flight.
 
According to a report by PREMIUM TIMES, dozens of armed police officers laid siege at Olowu bus stop to stop cars from moving as early as at 5 a.m. in the Ikeja area this morning, as some passengers described the action an act of infringement on people’s right.
 
While speaking to a correspondent, an airline passenger said; “Is this the change we voted for?” said Kabir who kept walking fast while talking saying he did not want to miss his flight.
 
“This is not funny again, how can they shut the whole place down when the president’s flight is 11:30 a.m., this is wrong,” said Beauty, another passenger.
 
Samj Ehigiamusoe, a passenger flying from Lagos to Abuja, also condemned the situation. “How can Lagos State Government decide to lose money because a president is coming and how can a president allow his people suffer like this.”
 
While also speaking to a reporter, another passenger, Roseline Oguh who is traveling from Lagos to Uyo said the hardship is unbearable.
 
“This is not palatable at all,” she said after arriving the airport.” I left my house 4 a.m., but trust Nigerians, they will always find a way around it,” she said.
 
Recall that the Lagos State Government had earlier declared Thursday a work free day in the state ahead of the president’s two-day visit to the state.
