Adeleke takes oath of office Adeleke takes oath of office

The Osun State Governor, Senator Ademola Adeleke, has appointed an 11-man Disciplinary Committee that would supervise activities of the public transportation system divided into vehicle and cycle sectors in the state.

A statement by the spokesperson for the governor, Olawale Rasheed, obtained in Osogbo on Monday, said the vehicle sector would be headed by Nurudeen Oluronbi, while Sikiru Oyeniyi would head the cycle sector.

It further said the Disciplinary Committee would have representatives of the Commissioner for Works and Transport, Commissioner for Finance and a representative of the Osun Internal Revenue Service, among others.

The statement described the new transport management model as a “fulfilment of Adeleke’s earlier promise to sanitise the current park system and ensure commuters enjoy a new lease of safe and secured transportation.”

“It is a one-ticketing system approach across the state and it will create thousands of temporary jobs in Osun State. The new policy will boost our revenue-generating capacity and help improve our economy.

“In addition, this new system will eradicate the insecurity, destruction of properties and killings experienced by commuters when rival union groups attack each other. Moving forward, nobody should be caught fighting or causing any kind of unrest in our parks or roads,” the statement added.
