Lagos BRT Buses May Withdraw Services Next Week by Islie: 3:36pm On May 22
Primero Transport Services Ltd., operator of the Lagos Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) may withdraw its services on May 25, due to logistics problems and other issues, an authoritative source disclosed on Friday.

The source said that the company might likely run out of diesel and other supplies that would likely disrupt BRT operations.

“Primero is planning to withdraw all its buses from the road from May 25. The company is running out of diesel.

“Suppliers have not been supplying diesel fully because the firm is owing them. The company is currently running at a loss.


“Primero will run out of the supply of diesel and other supplies by Monday. So it is not likely the buses will run,” the source re-stated.

Efforts to talk with the Managing Director of the company, Mr Fola Tinubu, on the development was not successful.

On May 15, NAN reported a shortage of BRT buses across various routes, presence of long queues and an increase in awaiting time at BRT stations in Lagos.

BRT users have been complaining over the shortage of buses since the easing of the current lockdown on May 4.

On May 15, Tinubu said: “the way we are operating now is as if we are just running a social service for the people.

“Twenty passengers in the bus on the same old fare is not sustainable. We are piling up losses that we need to address urgently.

“Creditors are calling us. We need to address that urgently. The way it is right now is not sustainable.

“That was why we have limited buses on the roads. Every bus that is going up and down now is incurring so much loss.”

The Lagos State Government had directed the 70-capacity buses to carry only 21 passengers.

Upon the huge capital free profit they are enjoying in this corrupt Bus business they can't still manage it well,..Despite being a private business I am sure the owner is waiting for Lagos State govt to bail them out once more

Are you sure diesel and other supplies is the problem?

Maintenance culture and corruption has always been the problem.

I see a "Tinubu" as the MD. That is part of the problem.

BRT will NOT carry passengers for free, so where is all the money?

The level of tribalism on nairaland cannot make people comfortably air their views. Primero is owned by Tinubu's relative, how then do you want the organization to function well? With the high population in Lagos, I think it's disgraceful that they can't pay for diesel, the money must have been looted.
I reside in Abuja and whenever I pass through Transcorp Hilton hotel I have tremendous joy on how that place (formerly Federal government managed) is being run. Kudos to the Hilton's on that one.
Government should always ensure that they are transparent in giving out contracts and avoid awarding to cronies to avoid issues like this.
I am forever proud of the work of Nasir El Rufai during his tenure as Bureau of Public Enterprise Director General. He always ensured that the best got government contracts and bids.
No tribalistic bigot should quote me, I won't reply.

Can you imagine what will happen after this pandemic?

Have you thought of what will be the result of life after the covid 19?
