Lagos State Governor, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode, on Tuesday unveiled Oshodi Transport Interchange designed to transform Oshodi to a world-class transport centre and end all notorious activities in the area.

The governor said the transport interchange, which will cost $70 million, would be constructed on the public-private partnership arrangement, noting that it would be completed between 13 and 16 months.

He disclosed this at a meeting with stakeholders at the State House, Alausa, where he noted that the fear of insecurity “will totally be a thing of the past by the time the project is completed.”

The meeting, which was called to sensitise the stakeholders, was attended by leaders of National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW), market associations and community leaders among others.

At the meeting, Ambode said the interest of market men and women and transporters have been taken care of, as they would make more money compared to what they are currently making.
