Lagos bus conductor spotted with hand-sanitizer and face mask amidst the coronavirus pandemic.
Public transport system is gradually resuming operation in Lagos after FG announced a “gradual easing” of COVID-19 lockdown.
His aim is to sanitize the hands of boarding passengers to reduce the spread of the deadly coronavirus.
With the face mask on, he and the passengers were obviously following one of the measures enforced by operators of commercial buses to curtail the spread of the coronavirus in the state.
The chairman of the National Union of Road Transport (NURTW), Musiliu Akinsanya, aka MC Oluomo, has asked drivers to pick only passengers with face masks and only work between 8am and 7pm.
He also warned that no excuse will be entertained from any driver caught operating after the stipulated period.
Operators of BRT services, Primero Transport Services Ltd., also said all passengers must wear a mask before boarding the bus.
BRT service provided alcohol-based hand sanitisers before and after each trip, in addition to carrying just 20 passengers inside the 40+seater buses.
