By Nafisat Adeoye

As the festive period approaches, the Commissioner of Police, Osun State, Mr Adeoye Olafimihan has urged drivers in the State to keep to the etiquettes of the job.

He implored the drivers not to drive while drunk or while on drug, saying the festive period should be without any rancour.

CP Olafimihan said this during a meeting with the chairman of National Union of Road Transport Workers, NURTW, Mr Folorunso Olalekan and chairman of Road Transport Employers Association of Nigeria, RTEAN, Alhaji Olajiire Purpose at his office.

According to Olafimihan, the meeting was to ensure a good relationship between the two unions and to ensure drivers drive safely especially during the festive period.

In their separate addresses, the chairmen thanked the State Government under the leadership of Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola and the Commissioner of Police who they described as a man of impeccable character.

The Special Adviser to the Governor on Security, Mr Tope Adejumo who was also at the event, urged the residents of the state to be security conscious and report any suspicious movement to the police.

He also urged the residents to pay their taxes as this would enable the Government continue its developmental projects.

Meanwhile, the police also had a peace meeting with the herdsmen and farmers in the state.

During the meeting, CP Olafimihan urged representatives of the herdsmen present to prevail on others not to graze into farms, adding that the herdsmen shouldn’t allow children to lead the cows about as they may be not able to control them.
