Lagos State governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has fulfilled his first promise to civil servants by providing 40 new staff buses to ease transportation for the workers.
The buses, drawn from those newly acquired by the Ambode administration, were packed in the state secretariat on Sunday night, perhaps to surprise the workers.
Last week Thursday, May 30, 2019, which was a day after the inauguaration, Sanwo-Olu moved to the Adeyemi-Bero Auditorium, where he met thousands of civil servants and later toured the secretariat, terminating at the Car Park where he promised to provide civil servants with 40 new buses to replace the dilapidated ones.
The governor said he had gone round the secretariat to see things for himself, saying that the first ‘T’ in his policy thrust, ‘THEMES’ stood for Traffic Management and Transportation, adding that this would be the first thing he would tackle.
“We will look for ways to solve traffic in Lagos State. We have to start from our home and one of the things is to speak with the Head of Service to re-fleet all buses immediately. Our job is a tough one but we will do it. I will give you transportation, but you have to rededicate yourself to work. I will give you between 30 and 40 buses in a couple of days,” he had said.
