Commercial bus drivers and conductors will begin to wear uniforms and badges as from January 2012, says the Lagos State Government.
This was disclosed by the commissioner for Transportation, Mr Kayode Opeifa at the weekend during the sensitization programme on the new Road Traffic Law at Secretariat, Alausa, Ikeja, Lagos.
Thousands of transporters had converged on the Auditorium, where they were sensitised on the dos and don’ts of the new law.
According to Opeifa, from 1 January, all commercial bus drivers and conductors would begin to wear uniforms and badges in line with the provision of the traffic law.
He explained that the state government wants to sanitise commercial road transportation in the state so that operators in the sector could be proud of their job while quacks would be eliminated.
