Lagos bus conductors to wear uniforms from Jan.1



The Bus Conductors Association of Nigeria (BCAN) says its members in Lagos state will start wearing uniforms from January 1, 2018, for security reasons and effective service delivery.

Isreal Adeshola, national president of the association, disclosed this in Lagos on Sunday.
Adeshola said the operational uniform would bring sanity to the service in the state and the country as a whole.
According to him, the association has started training its members in the state and educating them on the job procedures and attitudinal change while on duty.
“The association has been able to train a reasonable number of conductors on behavioural change,” Adeshola said.
“We started the registrations and training at Lagos State Drivers Institute for attitudinal and change in orientation of the members toward passengers and traffic rules.
“By Jan.1, 2018, all our registered members will be in their operational uniforms for proper identification and effective service delivery.”
He explained that part of the reasons for training its members was to ensure adequate security of passengers and good customer relationship with the people they relate with.
He added that putting on uniforms with identification numbers would ensure accountability and brought sense of responsibility among the members.
Adeshola also said the association was working towards eradicating the menace of using under-age as bus conductors across the country, adding that persons from 18 years and above were qualified to join the association.
The president said any minor found operating as a bus conductor should be arrested.
“We are coming out to tell Lagos residents that bus conducting is a respected profession like in other western countries where they are respected because they offered humanitarian services,” he said.
“In Nigeria, people see them as nobody which is not supposed to be so.”
