Tension As Lagos Commercial Drivers Commence 7 Days Strike
Lagos commercial bus drivers under the aegis of the Joint Drivers Welfare Association of Nigeria (JDWAN) have insisted on embarking on a seven-day protest.
The drivers threatened to withdraw their service starting from Monday, October 31, 2022, over what they described as massive extortion of their members by urchins.
They have vowed to boycott services across the state over alleged multiple and excessive extortion of their members by the management of parks and garages in the state, as well as those attached to the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) and Road Transport Employers Association Association of Nigeria (RTEAN).
JDWAN National Leader, Akintade Abiodun, who disclosed this said some representatives of the association met with the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Transportation Engr. Abdulhafiz Toriola and the motor park management liaison officer Mr Hakeem Odumosu (AIG rtd) in the company of JDWAN legal adviser, Barrister Ayo Ademiluyi.
He said the essence of the meeting which took place over the weekend was defeated as all the drivers got was threats upon threats, hence the strike will take place as scheduled.
He said the following will participate in the strike: Ibile drivers stakeholders association of Nigeria (DSWAN), Mega City Drivers Welfare Association of Nigeria (MCDWA), Federal Assisted Mass Transit Incorporation (FAMTI), Owners, Drivers and Conductors Association (ODCA), Commercial Bus Drivers and Owners Operators of Lagos (CBDOP), Mini Bus Drivers Welfare Association (MNDWA).
