Danfo buses will not be scrapped – Governor Sanwo-Olu says

Lagos state governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has said that the yellow buses popularly known as ‘danfo’ will not be scrapped as earlier reported, but would rather be remodeled to meet modern standards.

Recall that in February this year, the state Commissioner for Transportation, Frederick Oladeinde, said the yellow buses do not have a place in the transportation master plan of the state, suggesting that they would soon be scrapped by the Sanwo-Olu administration.

However, during an interview with Channels TV over the weekend, Governor Sanwo-Olu said it will be unfair to scrap ‘danfos’ as they have served Lagos residents for a long time.

“It will be unfair for us. These are important stakeholders. They served our citizens. They served Lagosians for a long time. It became the print of Lagos, the yellow buses.

Let’s be very creative. Let’s see how we can remodel them without scrapping them out. We are collaborating with them. You know that our citizens now deserve newer models of cars.” the governor said.

On the mass transit buses that were destroyed during the #EndSARS protest in October 2020, Governor Sanwo-Olu said the state government is currently working with a local bus manufacturing company to replace the burnt ones. He said although the buses were insured, the insurance did not cover “unforeseen circumstances”.

“Absolutely, we are trying to replenish them, we have started the compensation and the interesting thing is that we are working with a local bus manufacturing company.

And it is going to come almost with the same specifications of the ones that were unfortunately destroyed so that Lagosians can have the same feel of the buses.

They were insured. Insurance will never cover you 100 percent.”
