According to the acting Commissioner for Transport, Prince Olanrewaju Elegushi, the Lagos state government will be introducing a new number plate for commercial vehicles within the state.
He announced this while addressing journalists at the 2017 Ministerial briefing to mark Governor Akinwunmi Ambode’s 2 years in office.
Elegushi said the new number plates will enable easy identification of vehicles registered for commercial purposes in the state.
He also explained that the development would bring a robust database for vehicles involved in commercial transportation to ensure safety of passengers… and added that about 5,000 commercial buses would be injected into the transport sector, while drivers and conductors will be given uniforms.
He said; “There will be introduction of uniforms for drivers and conductors to signpost a commencement of decency, discipline and quality service to the people of Lagos State.
“It is also to serve as a mode of identification and distinction between drivers and conductors,” he said.
