Lagos State Government says it would introduce new number plates for commercial vehicles in the state.
Lagos State Acting Commissioner for Transportation, Prince Olanrewaju Elegushi, who disclosed this during the ongoing 2017 Ministerial briefing to mark Lagos @50, said it would ensure clear identification of vehicles registered for commercial purposes.
“The state agencies like Motor Vehicle Administration Agency, Number Plate Production Agency and ministry of transportation will fine-tune the operations and issuance,” He added.
Elegushi, however, explained that the development would bring a robust database for vehicles involved in commercial transportation to ensure safety of passengers.
He said about 5,000 commercial buses would be injected into the transport sector, while drivers and conductors will be given uniforms.
“There will be introduction of uniforms for drivers and conductors to signpost a commencement of decency, discipline and quality service to the people of Lagos State,” Elegushi said.
