LAGBUS set to employ female drivers


The LAGBUS Asset Management Company, the operators of Lagos metropolitan red buses, said it has concluded plans to employ more women as drivers, reports ITRealms.

The cheery news which was made public through the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN),said the company is ready to train any lady or woman interested in driving the metropolitan bus.

The Managing Director of the company, Babatunde Disu, hinted that successful female drivers would be certified by the Lagos State Drivers Institute (LASDRI) before a bus would be allocated to them.

An accountant and a graduate from University of Lagos Abimbola Agbekola,a driver, urged females to join the programme and make a living from it, adding that “what a man can do, a woman can do better.”

Agbekola said driving articulated vehicles, such as the LAGBUS is a way of empowering the female gender. ”My husband saw the advert in a road show organized by the management and he told me when he got back home, and advised me to apply because he knows I have passion for driving.

”You may not have driving skill but management of LAGBUS will train you and you will be certified by LASDRI.This is an opportunity for female gender to empower themselves and make life better, instead of waiting for their husband to do everything for them,” ITRealms learnt.
