The Chairman of Lagos State Parks and Garages (LASPG), Alhaji Musiliu Akinsanya (aka MC Oluomo) has placed all female commercial bus drivers in the state on a monthly payment.
The gesture, he said, would complement their earnings.
Akinsanya, while addressing over 500 female commercial bus drivers at the agency’s secretariat in Agege, promised more welfare packages for all drivers in the state.
He donated N500, 000 cash to a female driver, Meimunat Ahmed, who is down with a partial stroke.
He also ordered the immediate procurement of a bus engine worth N600, 000 for another woman to continue her trade.
He urged the women to always be good ambassadors of the agency in dealing with commuters.
According to him, many would try to take advantage of them being behind the wheel but appealed to them to show maturity in relating with such people.
“On our own part, we will continue to watch your back and ensure that people do not harass you while going about your legitimate duties,” he said.
He enjoined them to shun acts that could dent the renewed image of the agency.
The women thanked Akinsanya for the gesture.
They promised to project a better image of the agency.
The women seized the opportunity of the event to announce their endorsement for the All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential candidate Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu. (Nation)
