Osun State Government has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) in the State on the new set of guidelines to be followed by the management of motor park operators.
The agreement was as a result of the temporary relocation of transport operators to a designated motor park at Olaiya area of Osogbo, Osun State.
The Special Adviser to the Governor Adegboyega Oyetola on Works and Transportation, Engr. Hussein Olatoke Olaniyan, during the signing the agreement explained that the State Government would expect more disciplined operation, compliance to the rules and regulations guiding the park, more revenue generation, as well as greater security for commuters.
Olaniyan described the new agreement as another step towards ensuring the sanctity of the road, especially the very important corridor in the State where a number of government offices are sited, and also towards ensuring the security of commuters.
