Governor Rochas yesterday, suspended the activities of Imo State Traffic Management Agency, ISTMA. This came as a result of their involvement in activities that brought bad image to the Government. The Governor also froze the account of the Organization.
He similarly warned staff of Owerri Capital Development Agency, OCDA, to desist from engaging in traffic management and control in the state.
The suspension was one of the outcomes of the interactive session with stakeholders at the Ahiajoku Convention Centre, Owerri.
The Governor stated that the suspension was for a month and the time will give him the opportunity to properly look into the affairs of the organization which has caused the citizens great displeasure in recent times.
The Governor said: “My administration will not sit and watch the electorate suffer untold hardship or intimidation from any government quarter”.
He warned that the citizens should not turn the road into a lawless place as a result of the suspension but to obey traffic laws and respect other road users.
