Gov Akeredolu bans vehicles with unauthorized tinted glasses in Ondo



The Ondo State Governor, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Odunayo Akeredolu, has announced the banning of vehicles with unauthorized tinted glasses in the state as measure to curb crimes.

The governor made the announcement on Friday via a statement signed and made available to reporters by the state Commissioner for Information and Orientation, Donald Ojogo.

According to the statement, the state Government had noted “with concern, the worrisome spike in crime rate across the State. In particular, security reports at the disposal of Government are considered signs deserving of serious attention”.

It stated that the last one week witnessed an upsurge in robbery, kidnapping and in some cases, murder.

The government urged all security agencies to come out and confront the development, adding that every necessary support in terms of both human and logistics aids would be provided to ensure the safety of residents within the State.

The statement reads in part: “As a Government, one major responsibility is the provision of security as well as protection of lives and property. In this regard, measures aimed at achieving such goals are the least Government can enunciate.

“Consequently, the Governor has directed with immediate effect as follows:

“That all commercial motorcycle operators, otherwise known as Okada, are to, henceforth, operate within the hours of 6 am and 6 pm. In other words, none in this category shall operate beyond 6 pm in the evening. Anyone found flouting this directive shall have his motorcycle impounded.

“That all vehicles with unauthorized tinted glasses are hereby banned from plying the roads. Every of such vehicle without a duly certified permit issued by a relevant security agency shall be impounded.

“Finally, it is pertinent to reiterate that security enhancement and war against insecurity are everybody’s responsibility. While Government and the security agencies play their parts, it is expected that the citizens also support by way of collaborating with the relevant agencies of Government.

“In this regard, residents of the State are urged to provide useful information about crime, criminal elements and activities in their immediate environment.

“Let’s collectively keep our State safe. Expose criminals”.
