Lagos State governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu on Sunday has retracted the statement earlier credited to the Lagos State Commissioner for Transportation, Frederick Oladeinde, that ‘danfo buses’in Lagos state will be scrapped.
Speaking on Sunday in an interview, the helmsman of Lagos said it will be very unjust to scrap the yello buses, adding that they have served Lagos residents for a long time.
Nonetheless, Sanwo-Olu said, the buses will rather be rebranded to meeting modern standard of the Lagos State government.
“It will be unfair for us. These are important stakeholders and they have served our citizens.The yellow buses have served Lagosians for a long time that it became the print of Lagos.
“We just have to be creative and device a means in how to remodel them without scrapping them out.
“We are also working together with them in ensuring that our citizens get newer models of cars,” he said.
