“The commissioning is expected to witness an influx of dignitaries from all walks of life and thus is envisaged to cause slow flow of vehicular movement during the period of 10am-10pm of 1st September, 2021. As all the concerned Authorities are making frantic efforts to mitigate the effect of the exercise on traffic flow, our men and officers would be strategically positioned to ease the traffic.
“In view of the foregoing, motorists, travellers and the general public are hereby advised to use alternative routes boycotting Adamasingba during the stipulated period.
“From Sango Axis inward Mokola, branch at Veterinary junction taking Jembewon Road behind Sabo down to Pensioners FM Radio House and link the main road at Fijabi House inward Iyaganku.
