The Edo State Traffic Control and Management Agency (EDSTMA) has concluded plans to ensure strict enforcement of colour codes for commercial taxi operators in the state.
In a statement issued in Benin City, Managing Director of EDSTMA, Dennis Oloriegbe, said the agency was undertaking the exercise in compliance with the law and order guiding the operation of commercial vehicles in the state.
He said: “EDSTMA hereby reiterates Edo State Government’s existing directives on the use of unauthorised colour code of all intra-state commercial vehicles within the Benin metropolis except for vehicles painted with authorized color code, ‘Yellow and Red.’
