He said the Commissioner for Transport was directed to incorporate officials of the Civil Guard into his proposed Transport Management Template to be known as the Imo State Traffic Management Agency pending when the legal framework would be ready for the of the running of the agency.

Emelumba also said the meeting directed the Commissioner for Works to revoke the contract of the Naze-Ihiagwa-Obinze Road and re-award it to another contractor.

He said the meeting commended Governor Hope Uzodinma for his road projects in the state capital.

Emelumba said: “The council noted that in the history of the state no governor has awarded road contracts of the nature Governor Uzodinma awarded and got them completed and inaugurated within such a short period of time.”

Meanwhile, workers of the Imo State Oil Producing Areas Development Commission (ISOPADEC) have demanded the release of their colleagues arrested by the police while protesting against the failure of the state government to pay them their salaries.
