He said, “Many sons and daughters of Badagry who are professionals will be giving jobs while other people will also market their products at their bus stops within Badagry.

“I am happy today because we are bringing BRT buses to Badagry axis, now that one portion of the expressway has been completed.

“When I approached the Speaker of LAHA, Mr Mudasiru Obasa and LAMATA management, they graciously approved it”, he continued.

“In 2023, Gov. Babajide Sanwo-Olu approved 50 per cent palliative for all BRT buses plying Lagos road, unfortunately people of Badagry did not benefit from this palliatives because BRT is not plying our roads.

“But now, from Mile 2 to Badagry, Okoko to Badagry and from Badagry to Seme, buses will be available for our people going and coming,” he said.
