Earlier today, Gov. Babajide Sanwo-Olu launched a safe, comfortable and modernised taxi scheme in Lagos State, with a rollout of the first batch of 1,000 brand-new vehicles under the LAGRIDE scheme.
The scheme will be operated on a lease-to-own basis, as a component of our multimodal transportation blueprint.
The need to provide a dignifying and more rewarding means of livelihood for the unemployed and underemployed population gave birth to this scheme.
The scheme will be operated on a lease-to-own basis. Under this arrangement, a beneficiary will be provided a brand-new car which will become the driver’s property after completion of the payment of the vehicle’s subsidised cost.
We are witnessing Lagos move away from the era of rickety cabs to brand-new, comfortable and a safe transport system he noted.
The multiplier effect of this singular initiative on job creation, youth employment, economic growth and development in the state cannot be overstated.
