The National President of Bus Conductors Association of Nigeria, Mr. Israel Adeshola, says that as from March it will be mandatory for bus conductors in Lagos state to wear uniforms, name tags, and badges.

Adeshola disclosed on Thursday that the Lagos State government has approved the wearing of uniforms and badges for bus conductors.

He said that the use of badges and wearing of uniforms by over 3,000 bonafide members got the approval of the government on Monday.

According to him, “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 explained that the introduction of uniforms, name tags and badges had become necessary to enforce decorum and ensure the safety of duly registered members and members of the public.

He disclosed that with the vital information displayed on the badge, any conductor involved in a crime can easily be identified and apprehended.

The national president explained that the novel idea was being experimented in Lagos state before other states can take a cue.
