    3. Unfortunately, Lagos isn't about esthetic view or outlook. Danfo survives Lagos because it's an old VW minivan that can run through a dersert and still have no issues. This ajebo minivan Ambode is introducing won't last.

    2. Nigerians will always complain. So what's your point? They should scrap it? Are new things not meant to get old? Is it not in that same lagos road that people drive Porsche and Bentley? Ndi igbo si na agaghi eji mgbagbu ghalu ogu. You cannot run away from battle because of death from bullet.

    7. Anon 10:06 thank you. Nigerians will always complain of anything the government does for even better the people lives. However I hope they won't give those agbero the bus to drive because those Guys are but bit amateur drivers.

    1. Exactly. Will they be employed?

      Delete
    2. All I see is the millions earned by the contractor that supplied these buses, Choi! Why is my hubby not friends with Ambode bikonu. Anyway we should send a proposal to fct minister asap.

    3. I hope the Danfo drivers won't add up to the number of rogues we have already.

    4. They will be employed to drive these new buses

  4. This is a nice concept and a wonderful ride, but what would happen to the danfo rides?? How many people would go out of business? And wont crime increase on the long run. They have demolished all containers too. But if we want CHANGE, we have to sacrifice alot.

    1. And to think that the high rate of crime is being perpetrated by them. God help una

      Delete
    2. If they can absorb them into their programmes, making them part of those that will drive and conduct people into those buses, given them the right training on how they want this buses to be managed and maintained.

      Delete
    3. Well the bus won't drive itself now would it? I'm more concerned about the state of some roads. The roads are so terrible and may in turn cause damage to the bus.

      Delete
    4. Damfo drivers shouldn't be qualified to drive these, else same spirit will be transferred and the buses will be beyond recognition in 5 months

      Delete
    5. This is what that(driver/conductor) training that trended last year is for.If the drivers can submit themselves to the training,they will be employed na.

      Delete

  12. Nigerian government will always start what they can't finish.

    ReplyDelete
  13. When another govt comes in ,this will be phased out just like the red colour BRT that no longer use the BRT lanes. Well if the danfo drivers are incorporated then its a welcomed idea for the time being..

  14. Mega city *yimu*
    Mega crime city loading

  15. Several things should be set in place before this rule is enacted.what would be done about the danfo drivers to avoid an increase in crime rate.

    ReplyDelete
  16. wow!! thank God o, there will be drastic reduction in one chance kidnapping. But then again something must be done to accommodate those danfo drivers and conductors, if not Nigerians will still pay for it on the long run.

    1. How about the current danfo drivers are given uniforms that will make them feel more responsible and drive sanely.. also a very strict rule of 'scratch the car and your pay gets cut' must also be in place, I think they can be tamed to behave better.... Or what yll feel?

      Delete
  17. This is good! But what will now happen to the danfo drivers, i hope they will not be scrap as well?

    ReplyDelete
  18. One month they will turn to Danfo buses again. Governors know how to milk their states shah. Good strategy to chop money

    ReplyDelete
  19. Nigerians lack maintenance culture. the buses go turn molue soon

    ReplyDelete
  20. In as much as I see it as a welcome development, would suggest, the government should find a way of not totally taken the danfos off the road, whether will like it or not they also have roles to play in making transportation easier for the populace. But if the government fail to consider the danfos and work out as arrangement for them, they might spiritually knockdown the engine of these new buses and we go back to square one. A world is enough for the wise.

  21. What's d difference between this and brt buses????

  22. Thank you Jesus.. the traumatic one chance experiences with this mad danfo drivers will reduce.. thank you jesus

  23. This is a good one coming from the state government but what are the modalities to maintain and sustain these buses. Let it no be another 'white elephant' project.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Kudos Gov. Ambode. But i hope this scheme would last oo.

    I remember LSTC buses back then in the 90s. We would ride for free as school children.

    May God Almighty have mercy on Nigeria and make things better like it used to be.Amen.

  25. Nice one, thos danfo drivers re reckless. Lagos I not for everybody!!! Those that can cope should relocate

    ReplyDelete
  26. Lovely concept by the Ambode regime, all those motor park touts known as agbero and their Oga's that sit down waiting for delivery will be eradicated, let me see how they will survive. They better go and be learning hand work now ooooo. Thumbs up Ambode!

    ReplyDelete
  27. this is a good concept but the best thing will be to give it to danfo drivers but first clean them up make sure they are getting a good pay and hopefully this works out. steady maintenance as well.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Ambode should do it in phases or what do they want those bus drivers to be doing after taking them off the road. Please, there's recession now, lagos state should involve the danfo bus drivers so that crime rate doesn't increase ohhhhhh.....na beg

    ReplyDelete
  29. I hope the danfo buses will not go into extinction, if so crime rate will shoot up o, abeg our dear Gov Ambode pls let the danfo still be working o,so poor people won't increase o
