UNIFORMS AND BADGES FOR COMMERCIAL BUS DRIVERS AND CONDUCTORS
Not too long , okada was banned and also tricycle operations are now limited. Another directive from the Lagos state Government is that commercial bus drivers and conductors will soon begin to wear uniform and badges.
Actually when I saw the news I was surprised. From my own perspective I feel its for the Good of the state.
More revelation about the proposed law by the state Commissioner for Transportation, Mr. Kayode Opeifa is that owners of such buses will have their identities aboard the vehicles.
He said, “The transport unions have agreed on the type of uniform and the badges they will give to the commercial bus drivers and their conductors. The identities of the owners (owners’ cards) of the commercial buses will also be aboard these buses.”
Again, the commercial bus drivers must be re-certified by attending the drivers’ institute, where they will undergo comprehensive tests – including vision and driving tests.
The Chairman, National Union of Road Transport Workers, Lagos State branch, Mr. Tajudeen Agbede, reacting to this development, said the union would always support the government in its efforts to actualise the contents of the Road Traffic Law, which, he noted, aim at saving lives and ensuring sanity on Lagos roads.
He stated, “We are always in support of government by making sure our members obey the Road Traffic Law. It is for the good of everyone in the state.
Do you think this Proposed law would benefit the citizens of the state ??? Would it aid in stopping and reducing crimes like kidnapping , armed robbery ,rituals etc.
Also would this proposed law last in the state ???
