The Chairman of the National Union of Road Transport Workers, Lagos State, Musiliu Akinsanya aka MC Oluomo, has vowed to deal with transporters who are reportedly taking advantage of the Okada ban in the state.
In a statement released on Monday, the Chairman reveals that members have been informed that the leadership of the Union has not approve any increment in the cost of transportation from different locations within Lagos.
”There is no price increase and no Commercial drivers or member of the NURTW should inflict additional burden on the good people of Lagos by increasing their transport fare.
Any drivers or union member found to be taking undue advantage of the situation by indiscriminately increasing transport fare will be dealt with.”
He added that the Union is also talking to the Lagos State Government to review the ban and restriction on motorcycle and tricycle riders in the state.
”We will meet with the state government and appropriate stakeholders to find a workable solution to the situation that necessitated the ban in the first place.”
