Adeleke suspends SSA on Civil Societies, warns transport officials against violence

By Michael Ofulue, Osogbo

Governor Ademola Adeleke has warned transport workers in Osun State against actions and activities capable of plunging the state into violence and lawlessness.

The Governor has also directed the immediate suspension of the Senior Special Assistant on Civil Societies, Comrade Emmanuel Adebisi, pending the outcome of investigations by the Chief of Staff to the State Governor, Hon. Kazeem Akinleye.

In a statement issued today in Osogbo, Governor Adeleke directed the Commissioner for Transportation to summon a reconciliatory meeting of all the warring groups within the transport sector.

“The officials and their members should desist from distracting the people of Osun from the many ongoing laudable projects and the delivery of good governance.

“This administration will not condone lawlessness and acts of violence. We must not and cannot afford to return to the era of the previous administration. Our government has zero tolerance for violence.

“Any issue within transport management should be resolved in line with due process. Internally Generated Revenue in Osun State is strictly regulated within a framework of accountability and transparency that cannot be breached.

“Our government has automated revenue collection while integrating multiple revenue points into a single billing process. Our IGR has increased as a consequence of our innovations and zero tolerance for revenue leakages. Diversion of revenue is a thing of the past in Osun State.

“The Commissioner for Transportation is to engage the transport officials and reconcile all financial records. Any transport official who engages in violence will face the full wrath of the law,” the state Governor was quoted as saying.
