Nwosu denies involvement

The furore over the taxi cab painting policy of the Imo State Government took a new turn during the week when some unpainted taxis plied the streets and major roads of Owerri unhindered. Last week, a Special Task Force was constituted to impound unpainted taxi cabs plying in the state capital.
Speculations were that unpainted taxis were not apprehended because they carried the image of Chief of Staff and a governorship aspirant, Uche Nwosu.
Public Relations Officer to the Chief of Staff, Mrs Vivian Onwuka, in a statement, said his boss has directed that such action should be stopped forthwith as he would not want his name or image to be associated with such controversial action that is anti government.
She said at no time did the Chief of Staff direct any person or group to paint any commercial vehicle with his image. She accused accusing  the Joint National Association of Persons with Disability (JONPWD) of  doing such on their own accord without his knowledge.
However, the repainting of taxi cabs policy in the state, according to officials of the State government is in line with its urban renewal programme.
