Edun said he would be stepping down the motion because of the need to consult widely, adding that such consultation was necessary to take the right step.

The motion had noted the increase in the number of touts and their nefarious activities on major highways.

He expressed worry that the touts had  recently expanded their activities by positioning themselves at various locations on highways and bus stops.

This according to him,  is to forcefully extort money from commercial drivers, tricycle and motorcycle operators.

He said that most touts were under the influence of alcohol and hard drugs and often resorted to violence in dealing with transport operators as well as private car users on  bus stops and highways.

Speaker of the House of Reps

The Speaker of the House of Reps, Rep. Femi Gbajabiamila, however, asked the lawmaker why he wanted to step down the bill.

Edun told him that  there was need to consult widely before going ahead with the motion.
