The National President of Bus Conductors Association of Nigeria (BCAN), Mr. Israel Adeshola said as from March 2017, it will be mandatory for bus conductors operating in Lagos state to wear uniforms, name tags, and badges. This development is coming on the heels of the proposed ban of yellow bus in Lagos state. The Lagos state government has already approved this new decree as of Monday.
It was gathered that the reason for the introduction of uniforms for bus conductors is to ensure the safety of bus conductors and also of members of the public. With the badges, bus conductors involved crime would be easily identified.
Also, this would help to ensure decorum and also solve the problem of passengers falling into the hands of those popularly known as ‘one chance’ as only registered members will be given the uniforms.
