An Oyo State High Court has declared the appointment of Park Managers across the state as null and void.

The court as a result halted the collection of money and dues from commercial drivers by the Park Managers.

Justice M.A. Adegbola made the declaration while delivering judgement on a suit filed by the former Chairman of National Union of Road and Transport Workers Union, in Oyo State against the state government over the appointment of Parks Managers.

Justice Adegbola noted that management of motor parks was under the power and confines of Local Government administration, saying appointment of the Parks Managers by the state government was unconstitutional, illegal, null and void.

The judge said it was wrong for the State Government to take up the primary duty of the Local Government and set aside the appointment of Parks Managers across the state.

Justice Adegola ordered all the Park Managers and the State Government officials to stop interfering with the management of motor parks in Oyo State.

The judge also stopped them from collecting any rate or dues from any of the parks or commercial drivers in Oyo State.
