Lagos State Governor-elect, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has promised to pay graduates to be employed by his fast approaching government, as drivers of Bus Rapid Transit, BRT, between N80,000 to 100,000 monthly.
Sanwo-Olu explained that employing graduates would help the state government get rid of reckless BRT drivers.The governor-elect, who made the disclosure over the weekend in Ikoyi area of the state during an interactive session with his classmates at the Executive Master of Business Administration class, University of Lagos, 1998/2000 set, stressed that employing graduates as BRT drivers would add more dignity to the profession.
According to Sanwo-Olu: “The BRT issue is something that has to do with culture. When we take over, by the Grace of God, we will advertise and see if we can employ some of our graduates as drivers.
“What I realised is that apart from the money we will be paying them, which is more than what they are paying an average graduate, we need to very quickly tell our people and encourage ourselves that there is dignity in work. We are going to be paying (them) between N80,000 and N100,000 to come and drive these buses because we expect a lot more decency.
“By the time we get the culture of the drivers’ right, the routes are coming up, by the time we finish the Abule-Egba/Iyana Ipaja/Ikeja route, it will boost the number of BRT (buses).”
