The Lagos state government has approved uniforms and badges to be worn by bus conductors, said Israel Adeshola, national president of Bus Conductors Association of Nigeria.
Adeshola said the policy initiated by the association will become effective from March.
“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 the first week of March, we will roll them out,” Adeshola said.
He explained that the uniform, name tag and badge will bring decorum to the job, ensure the safety of its 3,000 registered members and the public. Adeshola said Lagos was selected for pilot testing of the scheme, with other states to follow later.
