Aderibigbe, who lamented the effect of the covid-19 revealed that activities within the terminal have been sanitized, adding that from the entrance gate to the terminal, sanity has been restored. According to him, the authority stopped ticketing agents from coming to the terminal building in order to reduce crowd and touting as passengers were encouraged to go online to buy tickets instead of patronizing touts.
