They say what a man can do a woman can do even better. Edo state governor, Adams Oshiomole, must believe this saying because he has mandated that female drivers should be engaged in the state’s public transport system, known as Edo City Transport Services (ECTS).
Interestingly, most of the female drivers that took up the offer were between 22 and 25 years of age. Imagine very young and attractive women driving the long, heavy, airconditioned buses as if they were driving small cars.
The inexperienced female applicants were given intensive training and can now confidently cruise the Daewoo Luxury Buses plying the city.
