MC Oluomo Warns Danfo drivers: “Do Not Increase Fares”
MC Oluomo, the National Union of Road Transport Workers, Lagos State Chapter, on Monday, warned Danfo drivers not to increase transport fare.
The state Chairman of the NURTW, Alhaji Musiliu Akinsanya, popularly known as MC Oluomo, gave the caution in a statement in Lagos.
Akinsanya said that the warning became imperative following complaints from members of the public alleging that commercial drivers are taking advantage of the ban to inflict more pains on the commuters.
The NURTW boss said that no commercial driver should inflate the fares so as not to multiply the pains of commuters in the state.
He warned that anyone caught in the act would be dealt with in line with the rules and regulations of the union.
Akinsanya directed that all the branch chairmen of the union should monitor the fares and ensure that the commercial bus drivers did not worsen the plight of the people.
“We advise both the commercial drivers and Tricycle Owners Association of Nigeria and Motorcycle Operators Association of Lagos to be patient and cooperate with Lagos State Traffic Management Authority officials, obey traffic law.
Also, Oluomo Warns Danfo Drivers Against Violating traffic laws.
“It’s an offence to drive on BRT lanes or drive against traffic. Obey the traffic laws and regulations, comport yourself orderly.”
The state government on Feb. 1, commenced enforcement of the extant Transport Sector Reform Law 2018 banning operations of motorcycles and tricycles in some LGAs and LCDAs and restricted them from some highways, bridges and roads.
