Mr Adegbite stated further that the offender would be fined 200,000 naira and arraigned before a competent court of jurisdiction.

He also called for the reintroduction of weigh stations and its enforcement to reduce depression on the roads.

The Commissioner noted that the existing road networks were made for vehicles below the 30 tonnes stipulation and insisted that this directive must be obeyed.

President of the Union, Mr Chibuzor Asomugha told journalists during a press briefing in Abuja that government has not implemented any of their demands since the suspension of the last strike embarked upon by the Union in July last year.

ASUP is aggrieved over the dichotomy that exists in the way Polytechnic and University graduates are treated in the labour market, and the poor attention given to the polytechnics.
