Okada and Keke Marwa Ban: Any Union Drivers Indiscriminately Increasing Transport Fare Will Be Dealt With- Mc Oluomo
Alh. Musiliu Ayinde Akinsanya ‘Mc Oluomo’, Chairman Lagos State NUTRW Chapter
Our attention has been drawn to some drivers indiscriminately increasing the prices of their services due to the recent Lagos State government ban of motorcycles and tricycles in some parts of Lagos State.
Our members are hereby informed that the leadership of the Union has not approve or in anyway support any upward review in the cost of transportation from different locations within Lagos.
There is no price increase and no Commercial drivers or member of the NURTW should inflict additional burden on the good people of Lagos by increasing their transport fare. Any drivers or union member found to be taking undue advantage of the situation by indiscriminately increasing transport fare will be dealt with.
The leadership of the Union will meet with the state government and appropriate stakeholders to find a workable solution to the Okada menace that necessitated the ban in the first place.
Union members are once again implored to be patient and avoid violence at all cost and embrace peace.
Signed:
Alh. Musiliu Ayinde Akinsanya ‘Mc Oluomo’,
Chairman Lagos State NUTRW Chapter
