The Articulated Motorcycle Owners and Riders Association of Nigeria (AMORAN) in Ogun State, had on Saturday, 15th of February, 2020 inaugurated a new leadership to pilot the affairs of the association in Ogun State for the next four years.
This is coming barely nine months after the Prince Dapo Abiodun – led APC government had dissolved the leadership of all transport unions in the State, setting up a caretaker committee to monitor its activities which was headed by Barr. Sunday Adeniyi.
While handing over, the outgoing Chairman of the Association, Mr. Wale Ajiboye charged the new executives which is chaired by Otunba Nurudeen Aina (Alowonle) to be firm and resolute in its discharge of duties.
He implored them to repose the confidence which the members and leaders of the association reposed in them by ensuring that AMORAN records a landmark achievement and progress under its watch.
In his address, the Special Assistant to Ogun State Governor on political matters, Hon. Biyi Adeleye enjoined the newly inaugurated executives to live up to expectation. He said the decision of the State Government to dissolve the leadership of all transport unions in the State is not far fetched from insecurity.
He maintained that the executives must work cordially and provide the security agencies with necessary information which could help in securing the State. Hon. Adeleye stated further that the evil perpetrated with motorcycles can not be overemphasized, hence, the government is ready to work hand in hand with all transport union leaders in the State to tackle the menace.
Finally, he urged them to make good use of their office during stay and prayed that God Almighty guides their path to success. In his remark, Otunba Nurudeen Aina Alowonle pledged utmost loyalty to the association and assured that transparency would be the watchword of his government.
He specially thanked the Executive Governor of Ogun State, Prince Dapo Abiodun whom he described as a blessing to Ogun State and rare type of Governor.
“I am glad with the mandate given me today to serve as the Chairman of this noble association. I will never betray the confidence and trust reposed in me by members, leaders and stakeholders of this Association. I will work alongside my executives and other channels of the association’s leadership to ensure that our names are written in Gold after the completion of our tenure just like our predecessors. My sincere appreciation goes to the Executive Governor of Ogun State, Prince Dapo Abiodun allowing union activities in full flow.
