Ondo: NURTW members, leaders desert motor parks, storm Governor’s office, as Akeredolu clears air

Early morning and day-long check made up of NURTW members, which also hinders traffic flow on main roads in Akure and other parts of Ondo state, was not noticed today Tuesday, and union leaders complied with the Government Directive suspending their activities.

As it was gathered, there was relative calm across the state as commercial drivers and their leadership complied with the government's directive. It was also learned that Tickets were therefore not collected by the drivers just as the Ilesha, Ondo and Benin motorparks were all deserted in the Akure metropolis.

Our correspondent, who visited the popular Ondo Motor Park around 8:00 a.m. in the morning, noted that the usual hustle and bustle of union members looking for passengers had vanished as the indoor park was empty, unlike the normal time when the place would be filled with vehicles traveling to different destinations.

One of the taxi drivers in Akure, Mr. Taiwo Johnson, who spoke to Radio Nigeria in Akure, said the development came with mixed feelings as some of them were already addicted to 100 per drop. He said, however, that the 50 naira Directive was being complied with, but that long distance would attract higher fares.

Some of the commercial drivers who were also seen in front of the governor's office this morning, expecting the governor to address them, expressed mixed feelings about the suspension of their Union activities.
