The Lagos State Government has disclosed that is already looking into the demands of the Joint Drivers Welfare Association of Nigeria (JDWAN), with a view to finding permanent solutions to the issues raised by the association.
The Special Adviser to Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu on Transportation, Sola Giwa, announced the commitment of the state government to find a lasting solution to the issue raised by JDWAN in a press statement yesterday.
He said the move becomes necessary following the ongoing seven-day job boycott by the drivers over alleged “harassment and extortion by motor parks and garages management”.
“Sequel to the announcement by JDWAN to embark on a seven-day strike starting from 31st October 2022, the Ministry of Transportation invited its leadership to a meeting on Friday 28th October 2022, despite its non-affiliation to any of the transport unions known by the State Government, i.e NURTW and RTEAN.
“Most of the union members at the meeting were from the Badagry axis and it was resolved that the meeting be adjourned till Wednesday, 2nd November 2022 to have a larger house (the Unions inclusive) and resolve the matter amicably.
