NURTW Issues Warning To Drivers

Gov. Kashim Shettima, Borno State

The Borno chapter of the National Union of Road Transport Workers on Tuesday warned drivers against picking passengers along the highways but at designated motor parks.

It said this was to avoid ..........
bad elements that could cause havoc from boarding their vehicles.

Malam Bello Maduganari, the state Chairman of the union, gave the warning in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in Maiduguri.
Maduganari said all commercial transport operators and drivers must also ensure proper checks of both passengers and their luggage at various motor parks before embarking on any trip.
“Henceforth, members from the 87 units in the state capital must always check the identification cards of passengers before conveying them.
“Some of the members of our union had fallen as victims of the unfortunate circumstances while others had been killed because of the lackadaisical attitudes of some drivers.
“Drivers must also be cautious in accepting any messages that look suspicious; motor parks authorities should also be cautious of allowing people to sleep in motor parks.
“Boko Haram insurgents mostly target gathering of persons to cause havoc; so motor park operators should not allow anyone to sleep in their parks.
“If any member of the public wants to embark on any trip, he or she must wait till day break before coming to the park to board vehicles,’’said Maduganari.
