Following the signing of the Lagos Road Traffic Bill into law on Thursday by Governor Babatunde Fashola, activities of National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) across the various bus stops and motor parks in the state have been outlawed, the state government declared yesterday.
“Henceforth, union activity is no longer allowed in all the garages in the state. What they need to do now is to operate the way other unions in the state operates from a recognised office.”
“No union member should be seen on the road collecting money from transport operators. It is illegal and this is how it is contained in the whitepaper adopted by the state government.” Drivers and conductors in the state would be required to wear uniform, as this is meant to improve the safety of lives and property within the state.
“Government will soon commence the re-registration of motor parks across the state. The situation where people just park vehicles in a certain area, converting it as motor parks is now illegal,” he stressed.
