Lagos State Government has said that the Oshodi Bus Terminal is not abandoned but not fully functional, either. The state is in talks with inter-state transport firms to use the facility.
This was disclosed by Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu on Monday, during an interview on Arise TV.
“The station is not abandoned. We have commissioned it and given to a concessionaire and buses are in it. We want it to be an intercity and intracity transport hub. People coming in and out will use it.
We are still having conversations with big transport firms coming into Lagos but they don’t want to use the place. Rather they want to keep using Ojota, Jibowu among others but we say no, they have to use the Oshodi terminal as it has enough headroom for luxury buses,” Sanwo-Olu said.
