Madubuko warns fraudsters to steer clear of transport sector



ANAMBRA State Commissioner for Transport, Christian Madubuko, has called on all categories of transporters to cooperatewith the government in her efforts to sanitise the transport sector.

  Dr. Madubuko made this call during a brief session with the press and frowned against fraudulent activities of some dubious elements who parade themselves as government’s revenue agents just to extort money from unwary commercial vehicle operators.

  He urged the public to support the state government’s sustained campaign to rid the transport sector of touts and unlawful proliferation of fake emblems and tickets which adversely deprive the government of the much needed internally generated revenue.

  Commissioner Madubuko disclosed that the committee established to coordinate the operations of tricyclists (“Keke”) in the state had been disbanded for overstepping its bounds and terms of reference, as the members were found wanting in the execution of their assignments.

  According to Dr. Madubuko, the present Governor Willie Obiano’s administration had zero tolerance for corruption and would not spare anybody caught in the act, pointing out that there would be no sacred cow in the ongoing fight against grafts in the system.

  The commissioner hinted that another committee would be constituted to replace the dissolved team in due course, stressing that the ministry would leave no stone unturned to ensure that commercial vehicle operators comply with the laid down guidelines, rules and regulations for smooth running of the public transportation sector.

  He further advised motorists generally and other road users to observe and comply with the traffic lights installed at strategic points within Awka capital municipality and other major cities around the state, in order to avoid unpleasant consequences, as the defaulters would not go unpunished.
