Political parties cautioned over flagrant disregard for traffic rules, regulation

As political activities intensify across the country in readiness for the 2023 general elections, the Executive Chairman, Oyo State Road Transport Management Authority (OYRTMA), Akin Fagbemi Ph.D has issued a stern warning on behalf of the state government to all political parties to play according to the extant road traffic rules and regulations as enshrined in the Oyo State Road Traffic Management Authority Law, 2009.

This was contained in a statement personally signed by the OYRTMA boss and made available to newsmen at the administrative headquarters of the A
authority, Secretariat, Agodi, Ibadan yesterday, while inaugurating a special monitoring squad headed by himself to monitor and mitigate effects of political activities on free flow of vehicular movement across the State.

According to him: “It is a known fact that the Oyo State Government under the leadership of His Excellency, Governor Seyi Makinde is irrevocably committed to the sustenance of law and order as well as the protection of lives and properties of the people of the State. However, recent activities of some political organizations has been observed to outrightly negate this commitment and thus endanger the lives and properties of the people.”
