    Published By:

    Celebrations are in order as Lagos State Parks and Garages Chairman, MC Oluomo is set to give out relief packages to bus drivers and passengers.

    He made this announcement through the social media platform Instagram, stating that after holding a meeting with his team in Oko Oba, Agege yesterday, to discuss the impact of the subsidy removal, they came to a conclusion not to join in any form of strike or protest.

    He wrote,

    “Relief package rolls out for Lagos bus drivers, passengers.

    I Alhaji Musiliu Akisanya popularly known as MC Oluomo State Chairman, State Executives, and the entire members of Lagos State Parks and Garages met today 1st August 2023 at the LASPGM head office, Oko Oba, Agege, Lagos to review the situation in the Country. Particularly in Lagos following the Oil subsidy removal by the Federal Government.

    After much deliberations and review, we discussed the high cost of food, transport fares, and other area of public interest in particular the plan by the organized Labour Union i.e the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC) to call workers out on a strike action.

    After a careful and full discussion of the issue, we concluded that:

    A) We and our members will not be part of any strike or protest rally being planned to draw the Federal Government’s attention to the issue being debated in the Country.

    1. All transport families and members will be at work to convey people to their various destinations without problems because we are aware that Lagos State Government is set to announce some interventions in the sector.
    2. Lagos State Government has provided an atmosphere of peace for our operations. There is therefore no reason for us to join any strike that may threaten the peace of the State.
    3. The various palliative measures taken by the Lagos State Government, especially on transportation i.e. reduction of 50% of government public transport and a down and review on our Yellow Buses fares will also, go a long way in cushioning the effect of the subsidy removal. We have also embarked on internal measures like downward reviews on Lagos State Government and Union Tickets. With this, there will be a reduction in transport fares by commercial drives.

    We at Lagos State Parks and Garages therefore aquatically say no to any form of strikes and protest by any group or organized labor. All our members are therefore enjoined to go their normal duties without any feat or introduction.

    God bless Lagos State Parks and Garages.
    God bless Lagos State Government
    God bless the Federal Government of Nigeria”.

    Many social media users have taken to his comment section to react, singing his praise for the new development.

    One Prince Tunji Olofin wrote, “This man you tag illiterate is more intelligent than many of the so-called educated. More grease to your elbows and more of God’s wisdom, understanding, and blessings. You are too much Bro”

    One Folac Arikeade wrote, “God bless your efforts. Awesome”

    Huthies wrote, “Reduction of yellow bus price will be a great move most especially keke”.
