Oyo State to Employ more traffic Officers in 2021 – Oyrtma

Seyi Makinde’s government recruit more traffic officers as part of his administration tactics, to tackle the growing traffic jam issues that have recently hit the State roads and highways, in 2021. This was the report from the table of the Executive Chairman of Oyo State Road Transport Management Authority, Mogaji (DR) Akin Fagbemi.

Fagbemi spoke on Sunday, where he noted that the reason for the traffic congestion is simply because, people all over Nigeria have seen the great works that are been executed in the State, and they are trooping in to come and have a feel of what good governance is; something that has become extinct in our federation. The improvement of the standard of living, free basic and qualitative education are leading causes of this occurrence.

In his statement: “It’s 2021 and we are fully aware of the growing challenges of traffic flow in Ibadan Metropolis. Our men and officers had been working round the clock to meet these challenges.”

“The current traffic situation is not unconnected to the significant strides of the Governor Seyi Makinde’s administration in the areas of improved standard of living, free and qualitative basic education, unprecedented welfare packages for the active and retired workforce as well as enabling environment that has drawn several thousands of persons, entrepreneurs, businesses and jobs to Oyo State with the hope to tap from the current relative socio-economic stability and progress of the Pace Setters State.”

“To meet this growing challenge, in his New Year Broadcast, the Executive Governor, H.E. Engr. Seyi Makinde had itemised steps being taken by the State Government to significantly mitigate the impact of the apparent influx of persons into the State and the resultant traffic loggerheads viz massive construction of alternative routes, expansion and rehabilitation of existing roads.”

“Employment of more traffic Officials in the year 2021 and improved collaboration between the relevant government agencies,” Fagbemi concluded.
