Obaseki, EDSTMA promise free-flow of traffic during yuletide
Edo State Governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, has urged the State Traffic Management Agency (EDSTMA) and other stakeholders to ensure free flow of traffic across the state during the yuletide period.
Obaseki gave the charge when he received a team of EDSTMA Traffic Mayor Corps led by the President, Emmanuel Onimhawo, who was on a courtesy visit at the Government House in Benin
The governor, who was also installed as the Grand Patron of the corps, thanked traffic mayors for their commitment, dedication and voluntary service, aimed at improving traffic in Edo State.
Obaseki, who was represented by his Chief of Staff, Osaigbovo Iyoha, commended the traffic managers for sacrificing their time to control traffic in some designated areas in the state.
He said: “We recognise your efforts and voluntary work for humanity. We will continue to support you as we are doing a lot in the area of traffic management.
“We experience traffic management at this period in the city, especially during this Christmas season. We will support and encourage you to continue to support EDSTMA in maintaining traffic in the state.”
On his part, Onimhawo said the group is a voluntary body established in 2018 and attached to EDSTMA to control traffic in the state.
He noted that his men have engaged in voluntary control of traffic in the state for the past three years, adding, “We need the government to support the group to enable us to continue to deliver free services to humanity in the area of traffic management.”
