The National President of Bus Conductors Association of Nigeria (BCAN), Mr Israel Adeshola, has announced that as from March, 2017, bus conductors in Lagos state would start wearing uniforms, name tags and badges.
Adeshola, while addressing newsmen in the state on Thursday, said that the Lagos State government had approved wearing of uniforms and badges with effect from next month.
According to him, the use of badges and wearing of uniforms by over 3,000 bonafide members got the nod of the government on Monday.
“We are in collaboration with Lagos state government on the issue of badges and uniforms for commercial conductors, which was finalised on Monday.
“This is because we don’t want to start without the government’s approval. So by first week of March, we will roll them out,’’ he said.
The BCAN president further noted that the introduction of uniforms, name tags and badges had become imperative to enforce decorum and ensure safety of duly registered members and members of the public.
He said any of its members involved in crime would be easily identified.
