Lagos transporters won’t join protest; fares reduction commences today— MC Oluomo



Chairman of Lagos State Parks and Garages, LASPG, Musiliu Akinsanya, popularly called, MC Oluomo, has said no transporter in the state will join the labour-led protest.



He also assured that the cut in fares of commercial bus drivers will commence on Wednesday, as directed by Governor Bababjide Sanwo-Olu.

He said the tickets given to drivers at parks for N800 will now be sold for N600, and that all bookings would have 25 per cent reduction.



For passengers, Akinsanya said routes where transport fare is N500 has been reduced to N300, while those paying N200 for fare will now pay N150.



He added that commercial motorcycles (Okada riders) and tricycles (Keke Marwa) operators will have 25 per cent reduction in the tickets bought from the union.



MC Oluomo announced a task force team that would monitor the implementation of the directives.

Akinsanya warned various parks and garages’ executives to ensure compliance, stating that sanction would be meted on defaulters.



“The task force will be led by all members of state executives, parks’ chairmen and selected union leaders,” said.

Oluomo said that the agency would do all it could not to inconvenience the masses, hence the timely intervention.


He said the directive was a follow-up to the announcement of Governor Sanwo-Olu on bus fares reduction.
