The Ekiti State Chairman of Road Transport Employers Association of Nigeria, Samuel Agbede, has alleged that the All Progressives Congress of offering him bribe to work against Governor Ayodele Fayose.
He said the opposition party also promised him political appointment, luxury cars and other incentives if the association could support it in its plan to frustrate the state government. Agbede said his rejection of the bribe led the APC to sponsor some willing members of RTEAN to cause confusion in the association.
Speaking with DAILY POST in Ado Ekiti during the inauguration of the first phase of the state RTEAN secretariat, Agbede vowed that no amount of harassment, intimidation and threat will make him to withdraw support for Fayose. “They offered me money, promises political position and luxury cars among other things. I rejected them.
“Their latest antics is that they gathered former members of the executives to be causing trouble within the association. “I will never deviate. I’m working in line with the Constitution of RTEAN which says we should support the government of the day,” he said
Reeling out his achievements, Agbede said he had empowered over 30 drivers by making them car owners since assumption of office and promised to continue to do so. He appealed to members to control their emotion so as not to harass innocent private car owners on the road.
