Breaking News! Governor Ambode Set To Ban Danfo Buses In Lagos (See When)

Lagos state governor,Akinwunmi
Ambode, says he has plans to take
commercial buses popularly known as
Danfo off Lagos roads before the end of
the year.

He explained that this is to create a more
efficient, “well-structured and world
class mass transportation system that
would facilitate ease of movement within
the city”.

Ambode also promised that his
administration would soon roll out a
comprehensive environmental sanitation
policy that would make the city clean
without much burden on the people in
terms of taxes.
He said this at the 14th annual lecture of
the Centre for Values in Leadership
(CVL) at Muson Centre in the Onikan
area of the state.

“When I wake up in the morning and
see all these yellow buses and see
Okada and all kinds of tricycles and
then we claim we are a mega city,
that is not true and we must first
acknowledge that that is a faulty
connectivity that we are running,” he
said.
“Having accepted that, we have to
look for the solution and that is why
we want to banish yellow buses this
year. We must address the issue of
connectivity that makes people to
move around with ease and that is
where we are going.
“For instance, people going from
Ikorodu to CMS have started leaving
their cars at home because the buses
are very convenient and so why can’t
we do that for other places? Yes, we
don’t have the money to do that but
we can go to the capital market and
then improve on the technology of
collection of fares and that will
encourage investors and then the city
will change.”
