Taxi Drivers Win Case against Lagos Govt!

Another VICTORY over Anti-POOR LAGOS Govt!

·The Igbosere Magistrate Court 13 yesterday Monday, November 3, 2014 discharged and acquitted the patriotic members of the Lagos Taxi Drivers on the Case instituted against them by the Lagos Government.
·The patriotic taxi drivers had led the RESISTANCE against the exploitative and repressive “New Taxi policy” that was imposed to emasculate the regular taxi operators, majority of who belong to the class of the poor.
· The Lagos State Govt illegally banned the use of Tokunbo cars for regular taxi business and put in private hands/ fronts a money-spinning ‘deal’ to compel taxi operators to buy a car worth N4.5 million only from its pool of ‘private contractors’ who work in concert with a compromised section of the leadership of the Lagos State Taxi Drivers and Cabs’ Operators Association (LASTDCOA).
·JAF on 2nd May 2012 declared its support for the Concerned Members of Lagos Taxi Drivers and demanded that Mr. Kayode Opeifa should desist from using the Vehicle Inspection Officers, Security operatives and party thugs and sell-out and government apologist’s officers of Taxi Drivers Association from harassing and threatening the life of the concerned members.
