governor, Engr. on Saturday admitted that the state government was wrong to have appointed park managers for the state.

Speaking at the quarterly media chat, Governor Makinde said the government was wrong to have appointed park managers since it is within the jurisdiction of local government.

During the week, an Oyo State High Court presided over by Hon. Justice M. A. Adegbola nullified the appointment of Park managers in the state.

The Park Management System, PMS, was introduced by the Seyi Makinde -led Oyo state government following the proscription of the National Union of Road Transport Workers, NURTW, in the state.

Delivering judgement in the case filed by the former chairman of the National Union of Road Transport Workers in Oyo State, Alhaji Abideen Olajide (a.k.a Ejiogbe), Justice Adegbola described as illegal the collection of rates by the park managers appointed by the state government.

“We want to accept court judgement and we have directed local governments to take over their work.

“This is the first time killings did not happen during the handover of garage from one authority or administration to the other. We will continue to work in that line and ensure peace.”
