GOV. UGWUANYI BEGS KEKE NAPEP OPERATORS TO HELP HIS GOVT CAPTURE CRIMINALS

Rt. Hon. Chief Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, Enugu State Governor
The Governor of Enugu State, Rt. Hon. Chief Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, has pleaded with the Enugu State Association of Tricycle Riders Transport Union, otherwise known as Keke Napep and the State Executives of the National Union of Road Transport to contribute their own quota in his administration’s resolution to stamp out crime in the state.

The best-selling and most sought after online business and political news publishers, Tectono Business Review, got to know this development when Rt. Hon. Ugwuanyi made the request while receiving delegations of the two unions. According to him, this can be achievable when the unions use their business to disclose every information that would enable the government to capture criminals.

We gathered that the two unions in question visited the governor separately to promise him of their loyalty and also elucidate to him the challenges they are facing in the state especially the troublesome acts by a group of restive youths under the auspices of Road Transport Employers Association of Nigeria.

In their separate comments, the Chairman of the Tricycle Riders, Comrade Ikah Benjamin Ejiofor, and his counterpart in the Road Transport Union, Chief Joseph Ugwu, extolled the governor for his leadership qualities and appealed to him to prevail on Vehicle Inspection Officers (V.I.O), other government agencies and the transport group, RTEAN, to stop the incessant harassment and illegal levies aimed at exploiting of the commercial road users in the state.

Thereafter, the corpulent governor who is known for his disarming humility, thanked the unions for their unflinching support and the peaceful manner they have conducted themselves in their dispute with the transport group and pledged his administration’s resolve not to tolerate any form of undue harassment or imposition of illegal levies on the people of the state by anyone or group in the guise of revenue collection.

Governor Ugwuanyi gave a serious warning to those perpetrating such acts to desist from them as the government will not hesitate to enforce the wrath of the law against them no matter who they may be.
