Commissioner for Transportation, Dr Frederic Oladeinde today stated that state held the two heroes in high regard and would “not do anything to bring down the exalted heights they have attained during their lifetime directly or indirectly.”

He said, “The Babajide Sanwo-Olu administration, in a bid to finding a lasting solution to traffic gridlocks in the state, identified about sixty congestion points and have started work to improve traffic experience in five major locations.

Oladeinde added that the government consulted the Fela Anikulapo-Kuti family before the action was taken, stating that the whole process was for the good of Lagosians.

The Fela Anikulapo-Kuti statue will be relocated at the Opebi-Toyin street junction. The Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture is also working on a befitting location to erect the old Obafemi Awolowo statue.
