Oyeyemi said traffic jams on the expressway was due to the impatience of drivers who unlawfully drive against traffic. He asked the construction companies working on the road to reduce the U-turns on the expressway to just two.
“Drivers need to re-plan their journeys. If you have been spending one hour, you should plan for an extra-hour. That is why we have directed that they should reduce the U-turns to two. From Lagos to Sagamu, the U-turns should not be more than two so that people will not be driving against the traffic. From Sagamu to Ibadan, the construction is going on well, so I don’t think we have any problem with that.”
