Determined to secure the lives of road users, Ondo State Governor, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu (SAN), has expressed his administration’s determination to rid the state of vehicles that were not road worthy.

Akeredolu made the pledge during the inspection tour of the State (VIO) Computerised Vehicle Inspection Service, Akure Center in Akure yesterday.

He explained that the state government would not continue to leave its indigenes at the mercy of bad or rickety vehicles, hence the need to ensure that vehicles plying the roads in the state were road worthy.

“Some vehicles are not fit to be on the road. We have spent millions of naira putting this edifice in place for us to have proper vehicle inspection and good vehicles on roads.

“By the time the center starts, anyone without the certificate will not be on the road in Ondo State. It is important for us to be sure that all vehicles are road worthy,” he said.

According to Akeredolu, with the center in Owo, and Ondo coming up at the same time, then Ore and Ikare, it is certain that we will rid our roads of vehicles that are not road worthy.

The Governor further assured the company of the total backing of the state government for the project since a lot of money had been expended on it..

“We are ready to give you all the support because no matter how patriotic, an investment must have its returns, and we are prepared to ensure that you have it adequately,” he said.
