Cross-over Night: We’ve Deployed Over 150 Officials For Night Operation – OYRTMA

In its continuous bid to ensure an itch-free yuletide season, the Oyo State Road Transport Management Authority (OYRTMA) has deployed not less than 150 men and Officers for a Special Night Operation aimed at ensuring a smooth cross-over night across the State.
This was made known earlier today in a statement by the Executive Chairman, Mogaji Akin Fagbemi Ph.D during a press briefing granted at the administrative headquarters of the Authority, Agodi, Ibadan.
The statement read in part: “We have observed a massive influx of people into the State particularly during the Christmas and New year celebrations which has inadvertently translated into more vehicular movement. Apparently, this is as a result of the tremendous work and conducive environment brought into being by the Governor Seyi Makinde’s administration through prompt payment of workers’ salaries, enhanced security architecture, safety on roads, standardized healthcare delivery system as well as economic stability.
However, this influx of people calls for an enhanced operational approach from our men and Officers to ensure a seamless and accident-free yuletide season across the State. It is in-line with meeting this cogent societal demand that we have deployed about 150 gallant men and officers for a Special Night Operation to man strategic locations across the State particularly during the festivities with special focus on the cross over night between 2100hours-0200hours (09:00pm-02:00am) of 31st December, 2021 and 1st January, 2022”, Dr. Fagbemi said.
Speaking further, the OYRTMA Boss explained that the exercise would be complimented by a standby Emergency Rescue Operations Team in case of any emergencies noting that the public could reach the Authority via WhatsApp on +234 811 4390 097, Calls on +234 810 8087 536 or send direct messages to any of its social media platforms such as @official_Oyrtma on Instagram, @oyrtma1 on Twitter or via email to
“While we thank His Excellency the Executive Governor of Oyo State, Engr. Seyi Makinde FNSE for his great support to the Authority since the beginning of this administration, we must also appreciate the good people of Oyo State for their immense understanding, cooperation and support in the year 2021. We implore motorists to drive safely and carefully as we hope that the public takes full advantage of our social media handles and hotlines to get to us in real time in cases of emergencies as our teams are always at alert.
Whilst looking forward to a more productive year 2022, we wish the good people of Oyo State a happy and prosperous new year”, Dr. Fagbemi concluded.
