The Bus Conductors Association of Nigeria (BCAN) has said its members in Lagos will start wearing uniforms from January 1, 2018.
National President of the association, Isreal Adeshola disclosed this in Lagos on Sunday.
He said the step was to ensure security, stating that the association has started training its members in the state.
“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.”
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.”
