If you plan to travel out of Lagos this Easter weekend, perhaps you should start considering alternatives routes to the Lagos-Ibadan express.

Except it is a very important trip, it might be better to stay in Lagos.

Traffic towards Ibadan has been snail speed all of Friday right from the Opic-Arepo to Mowe-Ibafo area.

The reasons are not farfetched. It is Good Friday, a public holiday when many people make road trips to different towns in the hinterland.

However, the ongoing construction of the highway means several diversions causing bottlenecks around MFM, Ibafo and other areas on the ever-busy express.

FRSC officials are doing their best but they sometimes appear overwhelmed by the impatience of the travelers.

It is not clear what Saturday holds.
