Road Transport Empolyers Association in Edo State has pledged total support for the APC led administration of Governor Obaseki

Newly elected Chairman, comrade Monday Orhue made the declaration in an interview with our reporter recently in Benin after his emergence.

Under his leadership RTEAN would do all humanly possible within its power to support the administration especially as it affects the transport sector, he assured.

He asserts that with him in the saddle of leadership, a new RTEAN that believe in orderliness and the rule of law was born and it is poised to demonstrate it in all its actions and activities.

In RTEAN rating, he said the Obaseki administration has performed excellently and deserve all the accolades.

The administration obviously is making effort to actualize  its campaign promises to Edo people in all ramifications, Orhue noted.

Particularly, RETEAN is pleased with the government effort which has decongested various points of Benin City hitherto notorious for traffic congestion he said adding that the success achieved is an eye opener that more positive results could be gotten from concerted effort and determination of the leadership.

Hence RTEAN is hopeful that when the central parks at the Kings Square; City centre  is completed, there will be added value to service delivery in the intra  – City  transport sub – sector, also colour and up graded orderliness than what is  presently obtained.

In all of these, RTEAN will be partaking in the derivative benefits hence it’s support for the Obaseki administration is unwavering and remained committed to supporting it’s effort in making life better and more comfortable for the majority of Edo people, Orhue enthused.

2019 General Elections:

Orhue asserts RTEAN as a critical unit of the voting population of Edo State, it cannot afford to be docile and dwell in apathy in the march towards the 2019 general election.

Therefore his leadership has resolved to embark on serious education of RTEAN members towards sensitizing and reawakening their consciousness on the need to get registered and collection of their Permanent Voter’s Card (PVC).

This is the only instrument that empower every Nigerian of voting age to participate in deciding who become our leaders at the polls; when this is done, the next consciousness is the ability to identify the qualities expected in the leadership for example via previous pedigree, performance and otherwise, he pointed out.

“I can assure you that RTEAN under my able leadership will be alive to do all of  these and here in Edo State, we are  happy with what the Governor Obaseki led APC administration is doing.

“So in 2019 elections, these will be some of the factors that would determine direction of our ballots.”

Orhue assured that open policy, transparency, and accountability will be the hallmark of his leadership.

He adds that he would always strive to remain humble, focus, and be law abiding to constituted authority and above all operate leadership by positive example in order to be in harmony not only with members of RTEAN, but all stakeholders.
