APC forced us to converge at the Samuel Ogbemudia stadium today, we do not support Obaseki – Professional Drivers on WheelsWheels
Outgoing governor of Edo state, Adams Oshiomhole, in his attempt to deceive President Mohammadu Buhari that the administration of APC is popular in the state, today ordered Professional Drivers on Wheels to converge at the Samuel Ogbemudia stadium.
The penalty of failing to attend the rally at the stadium, according to statement by their leader who is an APC stalwart, is confiscation of their vehicles or outright ban from the motor parks across the state.
The drivers, some of whom volunteered this information, vowed to revenge what they classified as oppressive!intimidation and violation of their fundamental human rights!to earn a living.
It is a common knowledge that commercial drivers in Edo state are forced to pay personal income tax on a daily basis, a situation that has made them pay more than what Directors in the state ministry pay as tax annually.
‘We call on the civil society and NGO to defend our rights as we have become pawns in Oshiomhole’s Chessboard.” A member of the executives of Professional Drivers on Wheels, who pleaded anonymity, said to our correspondent.
