Stakeholders in the transport sector in Oyo State have been admonished to cooperate with the Vehicle Inspection Officers (VIO) in order to enjoy smooth operations of their duties and enhance the internally generated revenue.
Commissioner for Works and Transport, Mr Wasiu Dauda gave this charge during the stakeholders meetings with members of the transport Unions and Vehicle Inspection Officers held in Saki and Oyo towns respectively on Wednesday.
Addressing the mammoth crowd that attended the stakeholders’ meetings, Mr Dauda reiterated that the Mr Ajmobi’s administration has the welfare of its citizenry at heart, hence, the execution of various developmental projects and provisions of social amenities in the state.
He therefore urged the stakeholders to obtain necessary vehicle documents, register their vehicle duly, avoid reckless driving, renew their vehicular license and comply with the rules and regulations, saying that defaulters of road regulations and laws will be dealt with according to the degree of their offences as ignorance is no excuse in law.
The Commissioner appealed to the transport Unions not to see the VIOs as their enemies but cooperate with them as they are government agents, adding that any officer that collect unapproved charges should be reported immediately or handed over to the security agents.
In their separate remarks, the State Chairman National Union of Road Transport Workers, Oyo East and Road Employers Transport Association of Nigeria, Saki West Alhaji Azeez Gbadamosi and Alhaji Muraina Ekuntakoro respectively pledged their unalloyed supports to the state government and expressed their readiness to support the activities of the VIO’s to boost the IGR of the state.
