The National Union of Road Transport Workers has welcomed the directive by the Rivers State Government for commercial transport operators to paint their vehicles in the approved colours.


This comes as the State Government announced a deadline of Tuesday next week to begin impoundment of commercial vehicles that are not painted in the approved colours.


State Chairman of the NURTW, Tuma Kalang, told our correspondent Chinedu Iwunna said the painting of commercial vehicles is also obtainable in other states across the country.


Kalango said the deadline was extended after his recent meeting with the Commissioner for Transportation.




However; some taxi drivers are contending that the deadline for them to pain their vehicles in state-approved colours is not sufficient.



Those who spoke with our correspondent Felix Ojogwu appealed to Governor Nwesom Wike to assist them with grants to meet the target or give enough more time to comply.




The aggrieved commercial drivers noted that Governor Wike might be putting his second term bid at risk if he goes ahead to enforce the impoundment of taxis that are not painted in state colours.
