The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Edo state has condemned Governor Adams Oshiomhole for scrapping the Edo State Transport Management Agency (EDSTMA).

The party described the Edo Governor’s action as a policy somersault.

The PDP also said the government needs to tell the citizens of Edo state, the real reason why he sacked the traffic agency officials.

Speaking to newsmen, the PDP state chairman, Dan Orbih, said “Oshiomhole told a big lie when he said EDSTMA officials were not employed, constituted and empowered by his government to harass, intimidate and collect levies and fines from innocent Edo road users.

“Oshiomhole wants us to believe that his government is not connected to EDSTMA, even though EDSTMA’s offices were scattered all over Benin including its operational headquarters at the Ministry of Works located on Sapele Road.”
