    Govt. advises residents on traffic diversions
    President Muhammadu Buhari is due in Lagos tomorrow at the start of a two day working visit to the state, Information and Strategy Commissioner, Steve Ayorinde, announced yesterday.


    It is the first by a sitting president to the state in about 15 years, a testimony to the landmark achievements in the last one year of Governor Akinwunmi Ambode and the good working relationship between the state and the federal government, he said.


    During the visit, the President will commission the Lagos State Emergency Management Agency (LASEMA) Rescue Unit at Cappa Oshodi built by the State Government to “ensure prompt and swift response to emergency situations” and the newly constructed Ago Palace Way at Okota, Isolo.


    He will later pay homage to the Oba of Lagos, Oba Rilwanu Akiolu at the Iga Iduganran, Lagos Island and be hosted to a reception rally at the Tafawa Balewa Square, (TBS) Lagos where he will also commission and hand over security equipment and vehicles contributed by the state to securities agencies.
    A State Banquet will round off the first day.


    On Tuesday, Buhari will be Special Guest of Honour at a breakfast session with Corporate Lagos at the Lagos State House, Marina, after which he will have a short session with the public service at the State House, Alausa, Ikeja.


    Governor Ambode said Lagosians are looking forward with excitement to receive the President in the state.


    But he urged them to bear with law enforcement agents and traffic control authorities who will effect road diversions in some of the routes that the President motorcade will pass through during the visit.
