The Governor, in a statement by the spokesperson to the Governor, Mallam Olawale Rasheed, described the new transport management model as a fulfilment of his earlier promise to sanitize the current park system and ensure commuters enjoy a new lease of safe and secured transportation.
Governor Adeleke who reiterated the need to overhaul the state transport system said the approved new structure has a supervisory Disciplinary Committee to supervise all the activities of the two sectors in the transport system namely Vehicles and Cycles.
The statement explains that the transport management is a one-ticketing system approach across the state that will create thousands of temporary jobs in Osun state as well as boost revenue generating capacity and help improve economy.
