Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State.
The Delta State Government has condemned the illegal activities of some unauthorized Commercial Motorcycle and Tricycle who sells all forms of illegal tickets to riders across the State and diverting such proceeds into their pockets at the detriment of the State.
A statement signed by the State Director of Information, Mr Dona Obuseh indicated that for the avoidance of doubt, the State Government recognises only the Commercial Motorcycle and Tricycle Association (COMTOA), Delta State as the association charged with the responsibilities of coordinating and organizing Motorcycle and Tricycle operations in the state.
The statement further indicated that COMTOA were also charged with the responsibility of collecting revenue amongst Motorcycle and Tricycle riders/operators on behalf of the state government.
It warned individuals or groups parading and indulging themselves in the sales of illegal tickets to desist from such acts or would be treated as dissidents, arrested and made to face the full weight of the law.
The statement advised the general public to report individuals or groups involved in such act to the State Directorate of Transport for necessary action.
