While addressing the ongoing issues of illegal parking and traders causing obstruction on the bustling Ojuore road, Olota of Ota, Oba Adeyemi Obalanlege, led a comprehensive exercise yesterday, February 19, 2024 with the aim to ensure free passage for motorists within the axis by eliminating congestion, obstructions, and potential traffic accidents.


The Kabiyesi actively participated in chasing traders, okada riders, tricyclists, and commercial vehicles off the road. During this exercise, Oba Adeyemi Obalanlege issued a standing order, prohibiting any form of illegal parking, blocking, or obstruction on the Ojuore road. The monarch emphasized the importance of maintaining clear roads for smooth traffic flow.


Additionally, Olota of Ota conveyed a significant change regarding the Coca-Cola road, declaring it a one-way street with entry only.

Working in conjunction with Ado-Odo/Ota Local Government Chairman, Hon Sheriff Musa, Olota partnered with TRACE, Nigerian Army (N-ARMY), Nigerian Navy (N-NAVY), Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), and the Police, among others.
