According to the minister of state for transportation, Gbemisola Saraki, if the guidelines are not adhered to, the operational permit of the transporters will be withdrawn.
The minister pointed out that interstate transport operators should apply and could only operate on confirmation of satisfaction of the defined guidelines by the state ministry of transportation as there would be regular monitoring of implementation and adherence to guidelines.
The ministry would also monitor the impact of the measure on safety and minimizing the transmission of COVID-19 through the mass transit sector, she added.
“The guideline has been fine-tuned with that of the National Centre for Disease Control (NCDC).
“Similarly, all passengers must be subjected to temperature checks, and ‘no mask, no entry’ policy must be adopted.
