The leadership of the Joint Drivers Welfare Association of Nigeria (JDWAN) on Monday commenced a seven-day boycott of Lagos roads, beginning from Monday, October 31, 2022.

The boycott, according to a statement by the union, was over the alleged extortion of commercial bus drivers by the motor parks and garages management in the state.

JDWAN, noting that having met with the Lagos State Government representatives, the Permanent Secretary, Lagos Ministry of Transportation, Abdulhafiz Toriola, and the motor park management liaison officer, AIG Hakeem Odumosu (retd.), in the company of its legal adviser, Ayo Ademiluyi, on Friday, there has not been any concrete response to its demands.

Earlier, the drivers listed the alleged extortion points within Lagos.

“The Lagos State Government has since made no concrete response to JDWAN demands, rather, their representatives only asked for another letter to be submitted on Monday, which is regarded as a joke on our part, having released a press statement with concise demands.

We also honoured the demand to deliver copies of the letter to the Lagos State Government, the State Security Service, the Commissioner of Police, Abiodun Alabi, and Commissioner for Transport.
