Omoyele Sowore has said that his government will resuscitate the transportation sector in Nigeria with concentration on the welfare of transport workers.
Speaking with transport unions in a meeting in Lagos, Sowore said: “Our government will invest hugely in road infrastructure, we will establish a modern public bus transit system and for private transporters, we will subsidize the cost of buying buses. The drivers we will recruit to work in the public transport scheme will be provided a housing scheme and healthcare scheme.”
Sowore also said that his government will also put an end to the shenanigans of notorious transport unions who have turned themselves to the tools in the hand of PDP and APC politicians to disrupt elections.
Hassan Taofeek, Chairman Ibile Drivers Stakeholders’ Welfare Association of Nigeria, who also spoke declared support for the candidacy of Sowore: “We decided not to follow both APC and PDP because we know what we are doing. We can’t engage ourselves in election rigging and vote buying. We are ready to follow you.”
