Oyo Govt Appeals to Residents Ahead of Re-introduction of Payment For Omituntun Rides
… As Pacesetter Transport Service explains reasons
The Pacesetter Transport Service, PTS of the Oyo State Government, has appealed to residents of the state to bear with the government, following the planned re-introduction of payment for Omituntun rides as from April 1, 2023.
The development, according to the Chairman of the PTS, Hon. Dare Adeleke, was based on the fact that the recent fuel and cash scarcities in the country are gradually easing out.
Recall that in February, Oyo State Governor, His Excellence Engr. Oluwaseyi Makinde rolled out free Omituntun transport buses to ease the suffering of the people of the state from the twin crises of naira and fuel scarcities that have been the lot of Nigerians in recent weeks.
Governor Makinde, who announced this in a statewide broadcast following the suspension of his campaign said that the state government was ready to do whatever it can to alleviate the suffering of the masses.
Adeleke, in compliance with the Governor’s directive, said the Omituntun Mass Transit Buses would be deployed to more routes within the state for free, in order to ameliorate the suffering of the people.
