Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, on Monday handed over 35 brand new buses to civil servants for transport to and from work.
The governor had on resumption of office on Thursday promised to refleet the Central Bus System (CBS), the body handling transport for civil servants, as almost all buses being used to transport civil servants were dilapidated.
Four days after the promise, Sanwo-Olu handed over the buses to the CBS at the Car Park, Lagos Government Secretariat, Alausa, in Ikeja, Lagos.
A statement on Monday said the Head of Service, Hakeem Muri-Okunola, inaugurated the new buses and thanked the governor for catering to the welfare of about 120,000 workers.
Muri-Okunola stated that Sanwo-Olu made good his promise by refleeting the entire CBS, adding that it was now a clarion call on civil servants to rededicate themselves to effectively service delivery.
“You have to start doing your job well. If you have been doing your job well, it is a call to be excellent in service delivery.
“You cannot rely on bureaucracy, but getting the job done, be ICT compliance. Join hands with the governor to build Lagos,” he said.
Muri-Okunola added that the CBS drivers would have to undergo training to be able to drive the new buses as they were technical to operate.
