Ondo State government has banned the activities of the National Union of Road Transport Workers, and the Road Transport Employers’ Association of Nigeria.
The Senior Special Assistant to the governor on Special Duties and Strategy, Doyin Odebowale, disclosed in Akure, the state capital on Monday.
Following the directive, the NURTW and the RTEAN are to vacate motor parks across the 18 local government areas of the state and to stop collecting money from taxi drivers and other motorists with immediate effect.
The order also directed all the taxi drivers to
directly purchase ticket directly from the government and revert to the old fate of N50.
“Every attempt to make life difficult for the people would be restricted and the security agencies have been notified to effect timely arrest and prosecution of the defaulters,” Odebowale declared.
