As a result of the gridlock on the major road leading to Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA), Lagos; the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) on Sunday advised passengers to leave their homes on time so they don’t miss their flights.

The road linking the international airport from the popular 7 and 8 along Oshodi has been under construction for more than one year.

The General Manager, Public Affairs of FAAN, Henrietta Yakubu, who issued the advisory on behalf of the agency, said, “This advice has become necessary due to the traffic gridlock experienced by road users along this axis.”

She said leaving home on time would enable travellers get to the airport in good time and go through all check-in formalities with ease.

“We apologise for the inconveniences being encountered by passengers due to the situation; the Authority has already mobilised security agencies to ensure that the situation is effectively managed,” she said.
