The incoming governor of Oyo State Engr Seyi Makinde on Tuesday vowed  to unleash the full force of the law on any member of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) or any other group or association in the state planning to disrupt the peace of the state before,  during or after his Swearing-In ceremony .

Engineer Makinde handed down the warning in a statement made available to journalists in Ibadan by his Spokesman, Prince Dotun Oyelade.

According to the governor elect, his administration will “make life uncomfortable for those who profit from violence,” .

The governor elect emphasized that as far as he is concerned, he does not have a favoured group and no one is above the law and that  he has discussed with the Commissioner of Police to clamp down heavily on any troublemaker.

The incoming governor then assured all citizens in Oyo state including market women to go about their lawful duties as the new administration will protect everybody without fear or favour

It will be recalled that Oyo state Police Command on Monday warned against purported plans by a faction of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) in the state  to cause mayhem  during the May 29 handing over ceremony.

The Police Command handed down the warning in a statement signed by the Oyo state Police Commissioner, CP Shina Olukolu made available to journalists in Ibadan.
