Ban on Danfo : Lagos NURTW asks members not to panic by Stooi76(m) : 7:12 am On Feb 15
The National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW), Lagos Chapter, on Tuesday advised its members not to panic over the proposed ban on operations of yellow commercial buses in Lagos.
The state Chairman of the union, Mr Tajudeen Agbede, gave the advice in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos.
Lagos State Gov. Akinwunmi Ambode had on Feb. 6 announced a plan to stop operations of yellow commercial buses popularly known as ‘danfo’ for a more efficient, well-structured and world-class mass transport system.
Ambode said that the well-structured transport system would ease movement within the state and make Lagos cleaner without burdening the people in terms of taxes.
Agbede told NAN that the union was discussing the proposed ban with the government, adding that the union was ready to cooperate with the state government on its mega city project.
“We are still discussing with the government on the proposed ban on yellow buses, but we believe it is going to yield a positive result. The union is ready to comply with the conditions of making the state a mega city.”
“We are ready to change the colour of our buses and also comply with the directive to follow the service lanes,” Agbede said.
According to him, the union members are also ready to refurbish their vehicles to attain mega city standards.
