Bus drivers will get tax cards, and the issue of arbitrary payments will be eradicated once they pay from the point of their loading each day,” he said.Also speaking at the event, the Special Adviser to Governor Sanwo-Olu on Transportation, Mr.Olowo said the consolidated levy would reduce the multiplicity of levies collection as many residents and transporters have complained about the huge levies unions often collected.Olowo said the consolidated levy would reduce the multiplicity of levies collection as many residents and transporters have complained about the huge levies unions often collected.Toyin Fayinka, described the development as the first approach towards a total restructuring of the transport sector.Read Also.In this article.
