The Lagos State Ministry of Transportation has issued a stern warning to petrol stations on Monday, cautioning them against contributing to traffic congestion while serving customers with fuel.

Mrs. Bolanle Ogunlola, Deputy Director of Public Affairs at the Lagos State Ministry of Transportation, conveyed this message in a statement released in Lagos.
