Special assistant to the Governor of Ebonyi state on transportation, Barr. Uchenna Otuh explains there was no harassment of road users in the State.
He stated while responding to alleged harassment of road users by a team of a task force working with him and enforcing compliance in the State.
Barr. Otuh said his team would continue to enforce compliance on proper usage of roads in the State to ensure the safety of the people by the rule of law.
“There was no harassment, and there would never be, but there would always be enforcement with compliance on road usage, and that does not amount to harassment.
“Enforcing compliance is our major task, but in doing this, we are conscious of the fact that we are doing it for the people, we ensure that the citizens come first in all we do, we teach and enforce“. He explained.
However, he noted that bikers and other commuters in the state have been notified to stay away from plying one-way traffic, and maintained that enforcement of compliance is not harassment.
“We were on the radio for two to three months, sensitizing the people, we have held meetings with the leadership of Okada, with Keke, and we are constantly teaching them the dangers of rough driving”.
He charged road users to be responsible for the usage of the road as well as learn to accommodate each other by how they drive.
