We Will Employ Graduates To Drive BRT And Pay Them N100 000 When We Come On Board – Sanwo-Olu



Incoming Lagos state Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has promised to employ graduates as BRT drivers, when he assumes office.

This he said, is in a bid to reduce the reckless driving on Lagos roads.

He said his administration also plans to pay drivers employed between N80 000 to N100 000, to motivate them to do the job properly.

Sanwo-Olu said this while speaking with his classmates at the Executive Master of Business Administration class, University of Lagos, 1998/2000 set.

His words;

“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.
