However the Babajide Sanwo-Olu led administration has shown its commitment and strong resolve to reposition the state for more industrial cum economic growth and u unprecedented development.

A master behind the wheel, the Executive Governor of Lagos State, Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu like a Picasso holding a brush and pastel is decisively set to re-write the developmental narrative of Lagos State.

While the State has continued to lead other States in the Federation in terms of its internally generated revenue, it has also continued to witness the birth of a series of new projects which are adorning the physical state in Lagos.
The most recent, is the delivery and commissioning of the ultramodern Yaba Bus Terminal to boost public transportation services in Lagos State. Revitilising and re modelling of this ancient iconic land mark is one which deserves public commendation from all quarters.
This Terminal which was commissioned by the Governor is an ancillary infrastructure that will compliment the Lagos Rail Mass Transit (LRMT) Red Line which is currently being constructed.

According to the Governor during the commissioning of the project,“Yaba corridor is prominent feature in the Lagos State Transportation Master Plan, because of its peculiar nature as a melting pot of commercial, technological and academic activities. The city’s evolution over the years places enormous responsibility on the Government to ensure that its dynamism and growth are sustained through balanced development.

“The facility being commissioned today is a world-class terminal from which buses will originate and terminate. In the next 18 months, this bus terminal will be integrated with the Yaba station of the Red Metro Line that is being constructed close to the terminal. The Yaba Bus Terminal reflects our vision for regulated bus services, which the State Government currently champions through Traffic Management and Transportation pillar of our T.H.E.M.E.S agenda.”
