The National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) said it would consider electronic tracking of commercial vehicles of its members to tackle kidnapping in the country.
The acting NURTW General Secretary, Mr. Kabiru Ado Yau, stated this during the National Executive (NEC) meeting of the group in Osogbo, the South-West Zonal Office of the union.
Yau said in a statement issued yesterday that the union had commenced discussion with its partners on the possibility of electronic tracking of commercial buses in response to attacks on passengers travelling in commercial vehicles by kidnappers.
“Many times, our members are being kidnapped across the country. We have lost many members as a result of insecurity and there is no compensation from the government. So, we really need to be careful and vigilant when we are on the steering. E-tracking will ensure the safety for passengers and our members after we put it to use.”
