Just after the signing of the Lagos Road Traffic Bill into law on Thursday by Governor Babatunde Fashola, activities of National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) across the various bus stops and motor parks in the state have been outlawed, the state government declared yesterday.



Commissioner for Transportation, Kayode Opeifa, who revealed this while briefing journalists in Ikeja, alongside his Justice and Information and Strategy counterparts, Ade Ipaye, and Aderemi Ibirogba, said it was one of the provisions on the newly signed Lagos Road Traffic Law 2012.

Opeifa said the government recognised the right for them to associate, but believed that the motor parks should be made easy for those who want to carry out their business of commuting in the state to do so without interference.

According to him: “Henceforth, union activity is no longer allowed in all the garages in the state. What they need to do now is to operate the way other unions in the state operates from a recognised office.”

He said the development also prohibits members of the road transport workers from collecting money on the road from commuters.

“No union member should be seen on the road collecting money from transport operators. It is illegal and this is how it is contained in the whitepaper adopted by the state government.”



The commissioner said drivers and conductors in the state would be required to wear uniform HE HE HEHE Grin, explaining that this is meant to improve the safety of lives and property within the state.
He hehe hee he.. E go fit them well well

Ifemylove: you don't need to ask if they were driving government bus. They have a good idea, at least for security purpose, to know who is who. But my question is; if it will last?

Priority should be placed on creating jobs for Nigerian youths not forcing bus drivers to wear uniforms.

Ify, I think it's a good idea to give them uniforms, that will make us to know who the real professional are, they should also tell them to put on their IDENTITY card  to make it work effectively.
